Joy Division - "Futurama Sci-Fi Festival, Leeds 8th september, 1979" (Bootleg)


Allegedly the show-stealers on the first night of the Futurama festival were Joy Division.

This pretty decent audience recording seems to provide some evidence to that fact.
This bootleg has 'Futurama 2' emblazoned on the cover, but this is from the first Sci-Fi festival.A slight faux-pas on behalf of the bootleggers there.Tut Tut Tut!
The Lovely Dexter dressed as a 'Dead Soul' for Halloween 2016
As some fucker ran over and killed my wonderful dog Dexter yesterday,this will have to serve as a tribute to his (Dexter's) short life! Having previously survived a near fatal car accident with my daughter and me in 2015,and being poisoned as a puppy; it seems that the Dead Souls were indeed calling him!? What's also very appropriate is the fact that Dexter was originally called 'Ian' at the rescue centre we acquired him from.So i dedicate the classic "Dead Souls" by Joy Division at the 1979 Sci-Fi Festival to the memory of Dexter.

Tracklist:

01. I Remember Nothing
02. Wilderness
03. Transmission
04. Colony
05. Disorder
06. Insight
07. Shadowplay
08. She's Lost Control
09. Atrocity Exhibition
10. Dead Souls.

character.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Cheers everyone,very much appreciated.He was a perfect dog,if that ever existed. I'm bloody devastated!?

kmw said...

So sad, but you gave Dexter a few good years. Take care.

zeroid said...

Belated condolences for Dexter Mr Z, hurts like hell I know, when you lose them... was he a Jack Russell/Norfolk Terrier by any chance, our dog is a cross and 16 y/o so shes kinda easing down now, makes me well up just typing that, so I can imagine how you feel.
On a different note, thanks for all the Fripp /VDGG/Hammill/PIL/last few weeks postings,consistently good stuff.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Yes KMW, he had a short but happy life.That does console me somewhat.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Thanks zeroid,He was a Basset/Faux-brittagne , a bit like a furrier version of Hector from hectors house, with floppy ears and a vacant stare.Always good for a laugh.
Its not the first time this has happened, and the intensity of the grief is a tremendous shock.....
Luckily we have Fripp/VDGG/Hammill and PiL to take ones mind of it.

bill said...

Be consoled if you can Jonny, a happy life for a dog with the greatest love of good humans is solid gold. Dexter was lucky to have been found by you.
Hope your hurt heals soon and that you and your family are comforted by memories of all the happiness. Warm wishes from the old country.

I'm sorry for Dexter. Hope the fucker who ran over him crashes his car in a Ballardian way that makes Ian's soul smiles wherever he is.

ej said...

Very sorry to hear about Dexter. Like others have already said, try to remember that his life was full of your love and affections. What more can any of us give each other? Thanks for all you do for us too.

Ian said...

Condolences and regards. One mighty soul, Dexter. Blessings.

I'm so fucking sorry about your dog. I imagine said motorist fled the scene. Hopefully he wasn't a nutless wonder, but whether or no........what's done is done. Warm regards......

I am very sorry about Dexter. How fitting to have Joy Div here. To cheer you up, I have located the This Heat live tape and will hand over for digitalisation tomorrow. Magnus

I offer you my condolences from another who lost a pet called Dexter to a traffic accident (not the drivers fault).
