Joy Division

29th August 1978: Band On The Wall, Manchester

With Stage 2 and The Elite

The band receive good reviews in both Sounds and NME. Paul Morley writes for NME: "An audience will drift towards them (toward fashionable metal-industrial exploits), but Joy Division will need to fight the tendency to dilute brand new standards
to seduce a larger audience."

In 2020 Stephen Morris tells us"for some reason I seem to remember we did Louie Louie with John the Postman".
