Artefact

Joy Division

1978
a page from one of Rob Gretton's notebooks. Lots of interesting stuff in these...

note entries about Paul Morley and Joly at Better Badges. Also a mention of Rabid Records. At this time Martin Hannett was working for Rabid and the label had experience of getting an independent single pressed, released and distributed. Rob Gretton and Tony Wilson used Rabid's experience to help get their first singles out, so here we can presume that Rabid helped with the production of Joy Division's first single.
