Punk77 - Joy Division Rehearsals - October/November 1977

Are Joy Division Punk???? Dont Care - it's my blog and I'll share if I want to.

A couple of years ago a chap (who wishes to remain anonymous) got in touch with me to say Thank You for all the things that I had shared. He has been following my blog since the very early days and has grabbed many things for his collection. He said that unfortunately he didnt have any PIL recordings that I needed but as a Thank You he sent me his complete collection of Ioy Division bootlegs. 

While I did love the studio stuff of Joy Division, I in no way considered myself a massive fan or a knowledgeable one either.

Anyway once I received the Joy Division recordings I decided to do a bit of research. It turns out that the very kind gentleman appears to have sent me copies of every known JD live recording ever. Plus he also sent me various sources, so for some gigs I have audience and soundboard recordings.

Sadly I have no info about the source or lineage of any of them but I do enjoy them immensely. So today I am sharing with you some rehearsals that came as part of the package. I hope you can enjoy them to,

A massive Thank You to the original source of this (whoever you may be) and a massive Thank You to my anonymous donor. Your gift was not necessary as I do this for the love of it, but your gift is greatly appreciated.
