Editorial Reviews

1994 reissue of compilation of 1977 recordings by Warsaw, an early moniker for the Mancunian act Joy Division. Although the band's more famous moniker was not yet in place, their intensity and mystery was. from Peter Hook's bass and Bernard Sumner's guitar to Ian Curtis' haunting vocals, this collection is a candid audio view of a band just about ready to explode. This pressing features 17 raw, but respectable cuts, including five bonus tracks, 'Inside the Line', 'At a Later Date', 'Guts', 'The Kill' and 'You're No Good for Me'. Others include 'Failures', 'Leaders of Men', 'They Walked Inline', 'Novelty', 'No Love Lost', 'Transmission', 'Living in the Ice Age', 'Interzone', 'Warsaw' and 'Shadowplay'.

Joy Division was a rock band.
D. Garcia
I would go so far as to say this would be the best introduction for those unfamiliar with the band.
GreezusCroat
And allows you to hear how the band built themselves to become as great as they eventually would.

This is the material that would become Joy Division. Early may '78 recordings, Having just acquired Stephen Morris as a drummer, who skeleton-ized their style, completing it, giving some structure upon which to hang the flesh, blood and bile. The band would walk away from these sessions- in pert because a producer added some synth to the final mix, so as to temper the punk style. warsaw didn't like that, it would seem. ultimately, this was used to attempt to barter a deal with RCA- a project that was eventually abandoned... now it's this import.

When you compare this with what they were doing less than two years later on 'Closer,' you kinda have to marvel. Such evolution is like time-lapse photography. It boggles the heart and soul...

So: Joy Division in their early pupal stages. If you like your music sloppy and punk- true, late-70's punk- look no further. Also, you can hear the vocals and words quite clearly (good cuz no lyric sheet here- just a short history). Always a good thing. Still, this is pretty Stooged-out stuff, stylistically. damn good. The sound production is uneven and it lacks the idiosyncratic attentions of uber-producer Martin Hannett. They're feeling out their own style and it's exciting to hear. The thing is, for the most part you can get most of these songs on Disc 3 of the "Hear and Soul" box set. The versions there are mainly as good if not better than these. These are crustier...

"The Drawback," think, is the exact same cut on both editions.

"Leaders of Men," a classic track, played faster and thinner than the box set. Ian sounds haunted.

"They Walked In Line," is a bit faster, I think, than the box set version. Scratchier. Echo vox on chorus.

"Failures," a short romp through this bare bones punk tune.

This is a bootleg, rather than a band-sanctioned official release. Three of these songs also appear on the "Heart and Soul" boxed set (The Drawback, Shadowplay, Interzone), and the sound quality is notably better there than here. However, the sound quality of this bootleg is really pretty good; you can enjoy the music unimpeded. There is, however, apparently a pristine sounding German bootleg out there somewhere.
The final five songs constitute the band's earliest demo, from July 1977. At that point they were called Warsaw, and you can hardly perceive Joy Division in the breakneck punk frenzy. Interesting evidence of how quickly the band evolved, but little more.
Five months later, the band (now nearly called Joy Division) recorded the excellent e.p. "An Ideal for Living," which is included in full on "Heart and Soul" and "Substance." In May 1978, they did sessions for a planned RCA album, which never saw release. This "Warsaw" cd includes those sessions in full. To my knowledge, only three (of the total eleven) recordings from these sessions have been released officially (see above). Because all four songs from the "Ideal for Living" e.p. are rerecorded here (in, I think, inferior versions), that puts the burden of value of this cd on a mere four remaining songs.
And they're pretty damn cool: a crisp (vocals all intelligible) "Walked in a Line," a slower "Transmission," a fiestier "Novelty," and a solid "Ice Age." The well-known recordings of these songs date from a year to two years later, so these are quite distinctive. If you're a fanatic, you want everything on this cd. If you're simply a big fan, these four tracks are worth checking out.

I owned this album for two decades as a bootleg tape that got passed around the Berkeley punk scene in the early eighties, and it never failed to become the favorite music of anyone I turned on to it. Joy Division always seems to sound better (to me) at their rawest, and the lower sound quality adds an edge of doom not found on the sanctioned version (of course this could just be that it reminds me of scratchy records). Either way, if you're a fan of "Closer" or New Order, I'm pretty sure you won't dig this. If you were immediately hypnotized by "Unknown Pleasures" like I was at fifteen, this is essential.

If you want early joy division without the processed drums, intense reverb and the heavy darkness, this album is for you. I pretty much learned how to play GOOD punk guitar by listening to this music. Raw British tone with childlike blasts up and down the blues scales make this record full of energy and great sounding riffs.
I especially like the version of "interzone" found here. It is much more stripped down and punk. The drums sound real and live, unlike that (...) drum machine tone on the later version. The vocals are similar to the Keith Morris era of black flag, high and dry.
If you are into wire (pink flag) and gang of four (entertainment) -- (and for some strange reason aren't hip to the warsaw trip), you've gotta get this.

This is a strange record with many confusing aspects to it. Its Joy Divisions first time in a recording studio with an album which never appeared. Some of the best tracks were re-recorded for the infinitely superior Unknown Pleasure. Here the sound is more primitive (badly produced and mixed) and hasnt shaken off its sex pistol inspred roots to form the new kind of music which Joy Division pioneered. Some of this tracks were relesed on An Ideal For Living EP, which appear on the Heart + Soul boxset. Some also appears on Substance. But this is the complete set. But for the life of me I don't know why they tout it as Warsaw. It must be some obscure legal reason, as when they went into the studio they were already called Joy Division. Only the bonus demos are really Warsaw songs, and a very intereseting glimpse into how the band started out (rubbish but enthusiastic- so YOU too could end up being great, just keep practicing) A good historical document then. But another confusion arises over the inclusion of a pulsinf piece of electronica from the CLOSER sessions. As You Said. Not only is this not WARSAW in era or name it also sticks out like a saw thumb, like putting a New Order song on a Sex Pistols record. But we'll forgive the makers for giving an official release to a fans favourite bootleg...
