It seems like nowadays, you get a lot of shit for being a Joy Division fan, as it seems cliche. Well, unfortunately for haters and whatnot, the explosion of the Information Age has allowed kids of the slightly depressed persuasion to find bands of olden times that reflect their inner-most thoughts and feelings. And it just so happens that Ian Curtis and the boys could capture that mood. We admit, we are fans but not super fans, although we consider “Ceremony,” the first New Order song post Joy Division / Ian dying, one of our favorite songs of all time. From a historical perspective, it seems to fit a Northern England mood, dark, dreary, post-industrial wasteland sort of vibe. And they were pioneers.
Regardless, Rizzoli, who just released the Supreme book, are publishing Joy Division this Fall, penning it “The definitive look at one of the most iconic rock bands of all time.”
Let’s hear a little “Transmission” for fun.
