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
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".
