I’ve written about Siglo XX before and how they have been constantly compared to Joy Division. I recently came across this 1983 show recorded at Melkweg in Amsterdamn which I was pretty surprised to find. The most interesting part of the recording was this Joy Division cover. Ironically, their version of “Day Of The Lords” sounds a lot less like Joy Division than some of their original songs.

  1. Great blog (unfortunately only snippets but you put up things we could never imagine they existed).
    I’m a big Siglo XX fan – Do you know anywhere else on the web I can find this gig? Even on Soulseek…
