Saturday Song

This song, "No Love Lost" was pulled from the first Joy Division EP, An Ideal for Living, which attracted the attention of Tony Wilson. Television personality, Factory Records label head, club owner, and general wunderkind Wilson produced the band's first full-length album. The band had met at the famed 1976 Sex Pistols concert at the Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall, famously attended by a sparse forty-two people, though as the legendary performance grew in stature, thousands claimed to have been in attendance at the time.

The history of the formation of the group and the late 70's Manchester scene was later effectively eulogized in the 2002 film, 24 Hour Party People.

The Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.


When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle all the night.

The dark blue sky you keep

And often thro' my curtains peep,

For you never shut your eye

Till the sun is in the sky.


'Tis your bright and tiny spark

Lights the traveler in the dark;

Though I know not what you are
Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
