Holiday reading 
From its amusing acknowledgements through to its detailed dissection of the recording of the album Unknown Pleasures via a thorough history of Joy Division, the book 'Unknown Pleasures' by Chris Ott (in the 33 1/3 series) is essential reading.

The book 'I Swear I Was There' by David Nolan [Milo Books; May 2001; ASIN: 1903854024] referenced herein, would also seem to be worth checking, detailing as it does the infamous Lesser Free Trade Hall gig by the Sex Pistols. It's now out of print but is probably available through the usual sources.
