Tortoise's Joy Division cover on box set 
Tortoise's A Lazarus Taxon', the 3CD + DVD box-set that was released last year features a cover version of 'As You Said' by Joy Division that originally appeared on the 'A Means to An End: the Music of Joy Division' tribute album (1995).

The liner notes describe the track as "Our contribution to a Joy Division tribute compilation, which was initially rejected by the label. We attempted to create a simulacra of this obscure track, and then combined it with various JD melodies and bass lines".

Thanks to Matt.
