Joy Division concert

29th February 1980: The Lyceum, London

A prestigious concert with Killing Joke and Joy Division co-headlining, supported by Section 25 and A Certain Ratio

There are four known audience recordings, including the one featured on the Heart and Soul box set.
There is also a superior mono soundboard recording, most likely recorded by a roadie, which features just two tracks, These Days and Atrocity Exhibition (which is cut short). This recording surfaced when the search was on for material for the Heart and Soul Box set. We do not know if the whole concert was recorded or just this fragment.

Songs performed:
01: Incubation*
02: Wilderness
03: Twenty Four Hours
04: The Eternal*
05: Heart And Soul*
06: Love Will Tear Us Apart
07: Isolation*
08: Komakino
09: She's Lost Control*
