"...the band very astutely spotted this image as potentially a wonderfully enigmatic symbol for a record cover."
- Peter Saville
These posters were supposedly used for flyposting, but not many were and very few survive now. Joy Division recorded two sessions for Peel's programme, both in 1979. John played New Dawn Fades, from Unknown Pleasures, near the start of his show on 19 May 1980, in tribute to Ian Curtis, and a year to the day of his suicide, played it again without comment at the start of the 18 May 1981 show and closed with Decades, from the posthumous album release Closer.
