Joy Division – “Aerial” un-released track leaked on YouTube

UPDATE: seems like this may all be a hoax, according to Hooky…

The track, believed to have been recorded during the ‘Unknown Pleasures’ sessions has surfaced online from an unknown source.

‘Aerial’, is believed to be only one of a number of discarded master tapes discovered by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver while excavating a former branch of Midlands Bank in Manchester for a new Restaurant. The song was only ever previously heard under the name ‘No Reception’ on bootlegs.

The ominous track consists of a typical Peter Hook driven bass line, not to dissimilar to the Iggy & the Stooges song ‘I Wanna be your Dog’. Ian Curtis’s distinct and troubled vocals bellow out the lyrics ‘I plug my Aerial in’ for most of the song.
