Joy Division ‎– Still

Notes:
Still is a "posthumous" double album by Joy Division, consisting of previously unused studio material and originally a live recording of Joy Division's last concert in High Hall, Birmingham University on 2 May 1980. The live performance includes the only time the group ever performed the song "Ceremony" live, which later became a New Order single. Another song featured is a cover of The Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray", recorded at The Moonlight Club in London on 2 April 1980.

Initially planned for release in August 1981 (hence the 1/8/81 on the centre labels), this was actually released in October 1981.

- The "hessian" hardback cover with grey labels was the initial release in an edition of 5000 copies in October 1981.
- A cardboard embossed gatefold cover, cardboard inner sleeves opening to the centres, and grey labels, also in October 1981.
- A special / limited gatefold edition in white cardboard with blue letters, and with white/blue centre labels was issued in December (believed to be one of Factory's Christmas gifts).

The album peaked at #5 of the UK album charts, stying in the Top 100 for 5 months, hence there are several reissues / represses, a.o. with altered packaging.

The song D4 "Decades" is suffering badly from wow and flutter. Obviously being transfered from a cassette tape copy.

The song "Twenty Four Hours" was also performed live at Birmingham University, but was left off the CD release due to time constraints. Despite not being listed on the sleeve, it appears on some LP pressings as track C6.

I got this free in 1987 while wagging school at Jupiter Records. The store girl asked me to go buy her lunch so she wouldn't have to lock up. It was raining like hell so I came back soaked. She shared her lasagna with me while we listened to side A of #1. When It finished she wrapped it up and gave it to me. What a babe!

A compilation that is as pleasantly confusing an "album" - and despite the adorable hessian sleeve, it is a mixed bag.

The studio part shines all the way through impeccably - very few albums in pop-rock history can be on par as effectively sinister, kicking off with something as frightening as "Exercise One". The powerful delivery continues with the stunning "Ice Age" and a number of other amazing gems released for the occasion. "Glass" and "Dead Souls" as we know them were previously released in single/EP formats.

From a live performance point, however, Joy Division are at best serving mere purpose of documentary evidence; those witnessing the energy and the charisma in the flesh may be right insisting on the unforgettable experience for all the right (or wrong) reasons, but from a level of just listening to it on record, Sumner and Hook's playing "skills" are at times insufferable, one can tell they struggle to keep up and maintain the "complete picture". Stephen Morris on the other hand is one true amazing human drum machine and helps a great deal by saving the whole thing, grabbing listeners' attention away from a potential fiasco.

The embryonic version of "Ceremony" is an interesting moment in this, although it sadly starts almost half way down the song - but regardless of the sound engineer messing up the first part of it (thus the reasons for its exclusion on record), this live opener carries a promise of a live performance. "Shadowplay" continues with vibrant energy, the audience nicely adds to the atmosphere, greeting Peter Hook's bass introduction to the song. But then along comes the utter mess - which, considering the circumstances surrounding this particular concert (reportedly being the group's last) isn't something that should be blamed directly on the group; however, the point they reached at that stage, playing as clumsy as they were is, with all due respect, sad - Ian Curtis audibly exhausted and struggling to sing - which, however, does give this particular live material an aura of a brutally honest, stripped-to-the-bone, tortured soul that absolutely triumphs on "Twenty Four Hours" which is a stand out moment in an otherwise technically troubled performance ("Decades" is probably the greatest victim here, sounding weirdly enough like a warped-sounding tape, with synths so especially out of tune).

At times, the mess adds to the charged up delivery some will justify as desired "error" in the performance, but it does shred more than fascinates. But then maybe, judging from the whole technical mess, this particular live performance can be viewed in some morbid epitaph fashion, as a bizarre farewell saying Joy Division reached its end there and then. The closer being "Digital" and the way Curtis audibly exhausted sings "Feel it closing in..." is particularly disturbing in that effect.

The sound problem on 'Decades' isn't to do with wow and flutter on the tape. You can hear that only the keyboard sounds wobbly whereas the vocals and other instruments stay at a constant pitch. It is either Bernard's synth going out of tune (analogue synths were prone to "drift" due to temperature changes) or the synth is being fed through a harmoniser which has been set incorrectly - possibly by the sound engineer front of house, so maybe It sounded fine through the bands monitors on stage. Either way it's a pretty unlistenable version of the song and if I'm not mistaken is the only live recording of that track in existence which is a pity.

I got the 2007 reissues of Closer and Unknown in 2016 for $12 each, on eBay. NM copies, very high quality, and lovely.

Not sure why this one goes for >40 on here. It's a mystery, and, honestly, it's a roadblock to a purchase. (Not gonna pay that much for a reissue.)

I've got a 2lp FACT 40 edition here which lets the record out to the side, embossed lettering and opening the gatefold, the tracklisting is upside down... ?? Anyone knows this version ? Or have I missed out on any version yet listed here ?

Hi - bought my copy many moons ago in Manchester and thought it was time to sell. However, I can't find my version listed. It has the gatefold sleeve that lets the records out to the side but has the rounded inner sleeves. White labels and grey text. No mention of TOWN HOUSE on the runout. Also record 1 seems to have the same label printed both sides - both sides are apparently side 1. On the runout you can see A or B so I know which is which. Is this a misprint or a dodgy version?
Thanks

Let's talk about Joy Division's sub-genre listing. Post punk? Joy Division DEFINES post punk. New wave? No. That would be later with New Order, who practically define that genre later on. Their crappy lead vocals, and their first LP place New Order in both sub-genres, so spot on with that. After NO's 1st LP they expanded clearly into the New Wave, Dance, EDM, and other sub-genres that I'm not as familiar with.
