8th February 1980: University Of London Union
|Joy Division headlined, supporting acts were Section 25, A Certain Ratio and Killing Joke.
The place was absolutely jammed due to the high popularity of all the bands, and Paul Morley wrote [NME, 16 Feb 1980]: “The full new introduction of synthesizers has not damaged the coherence and balance of the music in any way, it simply increases the amount of mood, atmosphere, ephemeral terror Joy Division are capable of.”
The full concert appears on the 2007 rerelease of the Closer CD
The second was taped by “Scruffy”, and is very bassy-muffled.. The last song Digital is cut on this source.
The third is less common than the others. While it’s complete, it was taped with worse equipment and is monaural
