About this album

An Ideal for Living is the debut EP released by Joy Division in 1978, shortly after changing their name from Warsaw.

All tracks were recorded at the Pennine Sound Studios, Oldham, on 14 December 1977. A 7” version was released in June on the band’s own Enigma Records label (not to be confused with the American record label of the same name), followed by a 12” version in October on the band’s own Anonymous Records label. All tracks were re-released on the band’s 1988 singles compilation Substance.
