Possibly unique, this acetate recording of the Side 1 track from the band's debut album, Unknown Pleasures, was probably sent to John Peel as a pre-release demo.
John Peel played this track in his show on 19th May 1980, in tribute to Ian Curtis who had committed suicide the previous day and also on 19th May 1981, on the first anniversary of the singer's death.
