Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division

23 May

I watched Control again on the weekend. Sam Riley is amazing, Joy Division’s music is amazing and the movie is amazing.

On a brief anecdotal side note, Sam Riley’s band, 10000 Things, were given a 0/10 for their debut album by NME. Surely after NME saw Control they felt like fucking mugs. Even though Riley never peforms Love Will Tear Us Apart in the movie, it’s Joy Division’s greatest highlight and lyrically remarkable.

Ian Curtis was a troubled man, one that was beautifully portrated in the movie, but Joy Division defined modern music – we have to write about at least one of their songs!
