just casually browsed through the net...peeped here,to see if someone posted & then checked front page....& then :"KA-CHING" this:
 Joy Division rehearsal recordings surface after 35 years:

Unheard Joy Division rehearsal outtakes have come to light nearly 35 years after they were first recorded and feature three versions of ‘A Means to an End’ and an instrumental track.

The first documented live performance of ‘A Means to an End’ was at Les Bains Douches, Paris in December 1979 and the only studio recording was made at Britannia Road studios in March 1980. The song was released on the Closer album in July 1980 some two months after Ian Curtis’s death.

The 90 second instrumental is a historic find as it doesn’t sound like an early incarnation of any later Joy Division song.

Unfortunately it is unlikely these Lo-fi recordings will feature on a future Joy Division release as the vocals are low in the mix and in all probability this was a cassette tape from a rehearsal session

.........joy division....always a suprise up their sleeve as it seems!

yeah,right..."Unfortunately it is unlikely these Lo-fi recordings will feature on a future Joy Division release as the vocals are low in the mix and in all probability this was a cassette tape from a rehearsal session"
...someone doesn't seem to know what JoyDividlians would pay for anything JD related...
no matter how bad the material,right?we're a sorry bunch (but with style!) but passion is passion!
edit:let's see if 'fage' can get his hands on this?

When it comes to remastering - Analog Loyalist is the best.

Somebody shed any light on the tape? Marko? Erik?
Who know where the tape has "surfaced"?

well,your 'remastering' is more accessible via the 'tube' but analog L. needs 'membership' & further...:"being 'in-the-know' where to find his work."

Woo! It certainly looks lovely. Are 'From Night To Day' and 'Misplaced' genuine unreleased songs?

'Misplaced' is actually 'In A Lonely Place'...but I always thought that only 5 versions of this song exist...

Jesus Christ! All those rehearsals are finally getting released!

Starting from Side 1, the first six are I believe the same listing as the October/November 1977 rehearsals discussed previously (the August/September rehearsals seem to have been omitted from this bootleg). I don't think they've previously been released.

Then the next three are the January 1978 rehearsals, which we've already gotten.

I think "The Kill (Detail)" is probably from the March 1979 rehearsal tape Bedge partially shared (so it seems this bootleg is missing "No Love Lost" from the same tape, which Bedge shared in full). Still waiting to hear that full damn tape...

The next four seem to be the new "A Means to an End" rehearsals that everyone was going crazy over when Marko or Erik made the news of the front page of the website. I have no idea what "From Night to Day" is...could be an entirely new song, just as "Pictures in My Mind" was.

Then the last seven are the March-May 1980 rehearsals. I know of six versions of "In a Lonely Place" - the earliest versions, which fans have labeled "Misplaced" (these have early lyrics), some snippet sounds previously released on A.L.'s blog (not a full song), and three more versions having the final set of lyrics. Up until now, all of these have been released in some form or another, except the first version with final lyrics. It could very well be making its debut, here. One of the versions could be new or are the snippet sounds. Then I'm assuming this version of "Ceremony" is the same as ever.

What a bootleg, holy shit...

"From Night To Day" is an early version of "A Means To An End", it's 8+ minutes long. "The Kill" is the same one Bedge shared. The instrumental jam is previously uncirculated.

....from the day the find was announced (28th feb.) with the remark that it is/was unreleasable....this release was fast....too fast for bootleggers to 'bootleg' (hint)?

I´ve ordered my copy! Can´t wait to lay my hands on it, but I still have to wait it travel across half of the globe (from Australia to Brazil). I hope it doesn´t come on the back of a lame mule!
