Joy Division. Sweden: Fabrique Disques, 1981. Vinyl LP, with 8 x 11 ¾ in. offset printed track sheet. No. 1321/1400, from Joy Division / New Order manager Rob Gretton’s personal collection. Used condition. Item #6949
Bootleg LP of the two Joy Division singles from A Factory Sample, Dead Souls from the Licht und Blindheit single, and songs drawn from live performances and the first and second Peel sessions.
A sort of underground counterpart to the Still compilation, Le Terme is remarkable for bringing together Joy Division singles and otherwise rare tracks and recordings, including the famous Peel session from 1980. Further, its consistency in design with official Joy Division entries speaks to the accessible and collective character of the band’s dark neo-romantic sensibility.
