Known Pleasures

Brooklyn Vegan posts about new Joy Division songs as a part of Anton Corbijn's biopic on Ian Curtis. This would mean the three remaining members; Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, and Stephen Morris, a.k.a New Order would lay down some cuts for the film, which is cool.

I am a tremendous fan of both Joy Division and New Order.I don't know how I would feel about seeing "Joy Division" play a show these days, it would be cool and all but I have come to terms with only ever hearing JD on my speakers. I think it would be good, however, for New Order. The swell of Joy Division interest, aping, and what iffing in the last few years would have us believe that Curtis was the only talent in the group, and that the sound was sculpted entirely by Martin Hannet. Curtis was a huge talent, but he was only one part of the innovation that was JD's music, the other three made the tunes and crafted the sound, then they started New Order and took it to a whole new level. So good for them for getting a chance to celebrate their songs and their friends life.

Here's a prediction for you as well, Coachella 2007- Night One- My Bloody Valnetine, Night Two- Joy Division
