7/10 Brian Staff review, 25 July 2014

This is a bootleg. No really. It's been out before in the mid-80s as a German-pressed vinyl that now commands a lot of money. As tape recordings go from the late 70's it's really not actually that bad a listen. A bit muddied and bass-ey with the usual mild tape echo/wow and flutter/quiet crowd chatter but as a worthy document of a now monumentally important post-punk band in their violent prime it does the job more than adequately.

It feels quite a privilege to hear this spooky transmission from John F. Keenan's legendary Futurama festival at the now-demolished Queens Hall here in sunny Leeds (for once, not a trace of sarcasm there). Wish I'd have been there, they sound seriously possessed and edgy. For serious JoyDiv collectors only but just how many of THEM are there? Seriously,  I've heard so many worse live recordings from this time so it'd be an insult to merely look at the pretty vinyl and shelve it like a nob-head.
