"What are you doing?" - "Recording Silence!"

There's no need to wax lyrical about Hannett and his assured genius/madness so here's a personal mix from his own collection of Joy Divisions 'Heart and Soul'  -a little grittier and unpolished but still my favourite track from Closer and one of the best basslines ever. Also check out Peter Hook playing with ACR covering the same tune and his prophetic claim regarding the late, great Tony Wilson.

Volga Select popped up on a Output Recordings compilation called "Channel 2 - A Compliation of Output Recordings" - it's well worth a listen.

I've been visiting my local record stores for the past few weeks and asking for the new Joy Division release "Martin Hannett's Personal Mixes", but nobody seems to have heard of it, it doesn't seem to exist in the real world, only on the internet. Only yesterday did i find out why; apparently "Martin Hannett's Personal Mixes" is not an official release, it's a bootleg, but then i see it's for sale on amazon.com of all places. So, how do i get my hands on a copy?
