That version is off of Unknown Pleasures.

Listen to Warsaw. It was their first album, but they were not happy with it, so they didn't release it (eventually released on CD in the mid-90s). When they later recorded Unknown Pleasures it was mostly new material. Interzone is one of the few tracks from the Warsaw sessions that they kept for Unknown Pleasures (but re-recorded). Like Interzone, the material on Warsaw is more raw and rock-n-roll than their later work.

They Walked In Line is another great Warsaw track.

I'm a big fan of all their material, but if their more 'known' recordings are too droney for you, Warsaw may be more to your taste.


Oh, and I love to promote my theory that Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" was really written as a response to The Captain & Tennille's cover of Neil Sedaka's "Love Will Keep Us Together."
