Have you even heard anything about this?:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/joy-division-and-killing-joke-hand-signed-1980-original-rare-collectable-/400452254836?pt=UK_Music_Music_Memorabilia_LE&hash=item5d3cd07c74

If it is true, it´s a great piece of history, indeed.
As for the price, it´s been treated like the original stuff....

A user called "Paul Ross" (that's his actual username) commented on this video, stating he was at the High Wycombe gig and he got the signatures. Suppose the seller is the same person?

1. The autographs on the piece of paper are not worth anything like that price, £300 maybe at a push.

2. They never produced any tour t shirts back in the day.


Just stating the obvious like.

Thanks, truth. 

I'd probably say £300 at a push as well.

Hi , I am the person who put the signed paper on e bay and i have mentioned already that i was at the concert in high wycombe in 1980 with my friends, a guy called carlos asked me to add more detail for everyone to read.  We were punks at the time , although near the end of following it as we did, I saw that killing joke were playing and joy division. I did not particularly like joy divisions stuff that i had heard although i had transmission and used to listen to john peel who played punk stuff including theirs. I really liked killing joke though so we went , by modern standards there were not many people there so you could go right up to the front if you wanted to. The best song of theirs i heard on the night was love will tear us apart and when we saw Ian Curtis i told him that i really liked that song and they should release it. I was not aware of his health issues and i would never have known it eitrher by how he was with us, he was nice along with the other band memebers of joy division and killing joke, the only one i avoided was Peter hook as he seemed more distant and not forth coming, that was rare for most punk bands as they were surprisingly nice to us.I am ashamed to say that i joked with my friend about how funny Ian curtis looked like when dancing but i am sure he would have thought the same about me as i cant dance at all. They were much better than i anticipated though and kept the concert ticket as a book mark for school.I an Curtis had a bit of a laugh at my back of my jacket as it had a painted picture of a rabid dog from slaughter and the dogs, again i thought ne was agreat guy and would never have guessed he had any problems. I hope this is a great read for you all, if i ever find the ticket i will post a picture of it for you to see,as far as selling the signatures i plucked a figure out of the sky to be honest and have no idea of its value if it sells it sells if it does not i am not sure what i will do with it, i suppose Joy Division fans dont want killing joke signatures on but it will look crap cut up, but it has led to me being able to share my  experience with fans more dedicated than i was ,this is the second time i have left a message on here as someone before said to mention the concert, but this time i hope i have left a bit more detail   Paul

Hi Carlos, you are welcome , i will send you a photo of the single , and the ticket if i find it, someone earlier said about t shirts, i am not sure what it was about , but i dont remember anybody selling t shirts at gigs much when i was a punk, places punk bands played were not very big, we got t shirts from the local markets or london. Most peolpe did not like punks at the time so big shops did not sell stuff either just records and badges. Thank you for enabling me to share my memeories with other fans like yourself cheers Paul

Hi , thanks for your message, when i find the bookmark i made out of the concert ticket i will try and put it on here to show you all although i am sure you have already seen waht it looks like,i think you are all amazing fans to have a website like this, i guess in my youth i just took it for granted how it was for us, i think now we were probably a bit unaware in our approach but they were mostly so approachable,Ian Curtis asked does my jacket bite or something like that as the dog picture looked fierce . I am glad some of my memories are of interest to you as my children think i am just old !

Well, to me, anything a person who saw Joy Division has to say about their memories is interesting. I'm only sorry I wasn't there to see them myself.

What amuses me about Paul's recollection is how often that must have been the case, i.e. someone going to a JD gig because of another band on the bill and just being a casual JD fan, little realizing they were unwittingly witnessing history in the making.

Especially in this case because of it being High Wycombe!  I mean, just listen to the recording, clearly one of the greatest gigs in history, I've often thought since then about Duncan sitting up in a front-row balcony seat taping the (awesome) soundcheck and what he must've been thinking to himself, hearing that booming sound in an empty hall ...
