Joy Division

24th September 1977: Electric Circus, Manchester

Supporting the Rezillos

Most sources incorrectly have this date as 27th August 1977.

Here's what Willaim Mysterious, the Rezillos bass player in 1977 told us:

"I can confirm that Warsaw did indeed open for The Rezillos at The Electric Circus; my records show the date as 24 Sept 77.

Our then roadie Bob Last took an interest in them, and that lead to quite a few opening spots for Warsaw/Joy Division with The Rezillos (a slighly bizarre combination!) and a track on Bob's label Fast Product compilation Earcom".
