(more songs were performed, but not
captured on tape)
Appx. duration: 25 mins. Sound quality 5/9
Erratic tape speed makes this is the worst sounding Joy Division live recording ever.

Bernard noted in May 1981 that "...the atmosphere ...strange... it was quite a lot like Manchester ... Berlin ... it had a cold atmosphere ...
Anonymous ... an evil atmosphere. You could feel the evil ... you could feel it from the war."

Joy Division probably named "Komakino" after this venue.

In January 2008 the Ian Curtis biopic Control was shown at the cinema.
