JOY DIVISION LIVE ATROCITY EXHIBITION LEEDS 1979

I LOVE THIS!!!!! AUDIENCE RECORDING OF THE BAND AT THE CONCENTRATION CAMP CALLED LEEDS BUS DEPOT, THE CONTRAST BETWEEN JOY DIVISIONS HIGH ART AND THE ROARING FANS, WITH CANS AND BOTTLES FREQUENTLY MAKING THEIR PRESENCE FELT (NOT AT JOY DIVISION THOUGH ALMOST EVERY OTHER BAND GOT BOTTLED)
SEE FULL DESCRIPTION........
SEPTEMBER 8 1979 AND THE GLITTERING HI TECH SCI- FI FUTURAMA FESTIVAL, BILLED AS CUTTING EDGE SCIENCE SHOW WITH FUTURISTIC MUSIC, RESTARAUNTS AND SLEEPING FACILITIES. .......... WHAT A LOAD OF BULLSHIT !!!!!! THE CONDITIONS COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WORSE OR MORE OPPOSITE THE PROMISED PARADISE, A HUGE DARK DIRTY OLD BUS DEPOT WITH CONCRETE FLOOR, NO RESTARAUNT OR FOOD, NO DRINKING WATER, THE TOILETS WERE SIX INCHES UNDER WATER, AND THERE WERE EVER GROWING PILES OF PUKE, BOTTLES AND CANS IN THE BACK TWO THIRDS OF THE CAVERNOUS BUS DEPOT. THE ACCOMODATION WAS........ SLEEP ON THE CONCRETE FLOOR!!!!!! THAT WAS A FUCKING HARD NIGHT ON THAT CONCRETE WITH NO BEDDING OR BLANKET EXCEPT MY JACKET!! NUMEROUS FIGHTS BROKE OUT DURING THE DAY AS FOOLISH 'ENTERTAINERS' TRIED TO PUT ON A SHOW IN THE SIDE 'STALLS' AROUND THE EDGES, THIS WAS ATTEMPTED IN ALMOST COMPLETE DARKNESS. ONE BY ONE THEY WERE BOTTLED OFF WITHIN SECONDS, SOME OF THEM RUNNING FOR THEIR L IVES!!!!!!! PSYCHO BOUNCERS CIRCLED LOOKING FOR THE SLIGHTEST EXCUSE........ ALL IN ALL THE CONDITIONS WOULD BE UNACCEPTABLE IN A CONCENTRATION CAMP............ ENTER JOY DIVISION....... AND SOMEHOW I SUMMONED UP TH STRENGTH FROM MY ALCOHOL SOAKED SLEEP DEPRIVED BODY TO STAGGER UP TO THE CROWD SURROUNDING THE MAIN STAGE. IT WAS MY FIRST JOY DIVISION GIG AND THE BAND AND SOUND WERE SUPERB.WHY DIDENT THEY JUST TELL THE BLEEDING TRUTH, 'JOY DIVISION WILL BE GREAT BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS A PILE OF SHIT AND A RIPOFF. THOSE WERE THE DAYS !!!!!!!
