just watched "control" a film by anton corbijn about the life/death of joy division vocalist ian curtis.
formed in 1976, they pionered the post/punk sound of the late 70's.
for those of you who dont know, joy division later became new order.
although they were only around for 4 years, they were an incredibly important & influential uk band, as new order were also to become in their own right.
joy division & new order are two of my favourite bands of all time.
below is the trailer for the film, their 1st tv appearanve, 2 live tracks & the video for "love will tear us apart" as well as john fruscianti's acoustic cover of "new dawn fades" & new order performing "atmosphere"
enjoy, & if you dont already own any joy division, go buy some!
hk records has an awesome double vinyl.
