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.
