Notes by Anthony Wilson
This is the second in a series of two. Paris, an unlikely twin for <a href=http://www.discogs.com/Joy-Division-Preston-28-February-1980/master/23283>Preston</a>. This cd is, of course, of it's time; not just late 1979 when it was recorded, as Joy Division beat up on their sound and vision tomove implacably on, from "<a href=http://www.discogs.com/Joy-Division-Unknown-Pleasures/master/4805>Unknown Pleasures</a> " to "<a href=http://www.discogs.com/Joy-Division-Closer/master/4734>Closer</a>", but also Spring 2001, the date of the release, reminding us, in the dog days of another culture, traumatised by synthetic rock and an increasingly aimless dance culture, reminding us what pop culture is and can be. Thank you Mr Mathers and you limp biscuit boys. But we can do it too. We can be real. And this band was more real than most of us can still cope with. Enjoy.
