Joy Division

Published in Music - 1 min to read

It’s been a Joy Divison kinda day. I think Unknown Pleasures is one of the greatest albums ever created, and I’ve binged it all the way through a couple of times already since waking up. It’s so hauntingly beautiful, in a way that offers a lot of help; things suck now, but they’ll be better in the future. Obviously, they tragically didn’t get better for Ian Curtis, but much like Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, perhaps his early death served to cement his musical legacy for future generations. I love the iconic pictures of Ian, or the videos of him dancing in his impossibly gawky way - he looks so trapped inside his body, desperate to get out, and it shows a lot in his music too.
