Joy Division, "She's Lost Control"

>> Saturday, January 28, 2012

I was late to Joy Division. Later, I mean: my particular segment of the generation obviously missed out when Ian Curtis was still alive, but then it seems like there was a resurgence of interest in or rediscovery of the band in my late high school or early college years.

At which time they didn't do anything for me. Not sure what it was, as I was already gaining an appreciation of kind of mechanical, droning, post-punk rock (who wasn't?). Maybe I was just being stubborn. Anyway, a decade or so later I heard a cover of "Isolation" from If Thousands that persuaded me to give JD another listen and I was a bit happier with them that time 'round, if "happier" is the right word.
