Limited edition EP by Joy Division sent to Jon Savage by Rob Gretton in autumn 1978 as a thank you for his support of the band. Gretton noted that the sound quality was poor but that the band would be reissuing the tracks. The edition was limited to 1,000 copies. 7-inch vinyl in a sleeve printed on a piece of thin cardstock measuring 14-inch by 14-inch, folded into four squares. The sleeve design is by Bernard Sumner, credited as Bernard Albrecht. Released on the band's own label Enigma, catalogue number PSS 139. When the band discovered that there already was another label called Enigma, they changed the label name to Anonymous Records.
