It has been a while since I have posted a throwback. Joy Division tapes were one of my staples, in my long haired skateboard riding days. Before I ever really heard much of their music, I was completely captivated by the whole Joy Division-New Order Kineckt. Stories about suicidal rock stars are easy for teenagers to become obsessed with. Ian Curtis is sort of like the Kurt Cobain of 1980. Anyway, I really like the music, quite a bit. It is like New Order, but with bite. Here is Digital.
