Joy Division - Licht Und Blindheit


On this date in 1980, Joy Division released a two song EP as part of a French artistic venture combining art, text and music. The package was called Licht Und Blindheit. The songs on the EP were "Atmosphere" and "Dead Souls". Neither song would appear on either of their studio albums but would appear on their 1988 posthumous singles compilation entitled Substance. The English translation of the German title is "Light And Blindness". The release was limited to 1,578 copies.
