There are two different recordings of this concert:
An audience tape which does not have track 01
Exercise One* and a soundboard tape which does. The
soundboard tape didn't turn up until 2004 and the
last track, No Love Lost is cut short**, presumably
because the tape ran out.
It's not clear if Exercise One on the soundboard
tape is from this gig as there's a pitch difference
between Exercise One and She's Lost Control and it
sounds like the end of Exercise One has been
recorded over rather than the recorder being paused.
The full concert, from the soundboard tape, was
released on the following bootleg CD::
The Youth Club
This gig was released on the following bootleg LPs.
These are taken from the audience tape and do not

"An Ideal For Living", page 42.

it was wild to have a band like Joy Division In
a Youth Club !!...but my main memories are of
first seeing Ian Curtis start dancing .. he
really scared me .. I wondered what was wrong
with him !!
Then, after I'd walked around the room shooting
various angles of the gig I ended up actually on
the low stage with them (Wow to think I've stood
on the same stage as Ian Curtis!!) ... I got
behind Curtis and Hooky, and Hooky told me to
fuck off! I was so proud that I'd been told to
Fuck off by one of Joy Division !! ... Years
later I photographed Hooky again for my local
newspaper, and reminded him of that time ... He
interrupted me by saying "I told you to Fuck
off!" ... and then two years ago, at one of the
events marking the 25th anniversary of Curtis'
death, I finally asked Hooky for an autograph.
He wrote ... "I told you to Fuck off!" ...
Karen D was there.
I was at this gig. Bowdon Vale wasn't a youth
club - it was a Social Club and cost 25p to join
-I still have my membership card but
unfortunately not the ticket.
Joy Division were amazing. Ian Curtis hypnotic.
The DJ was Ian Robinson and did it with his
