Unexpected Sunday Bliss: Joy Division

Oh, the bass of it!  I didn’t wake up this morning expecting to listen to an old Joy Division album–things just sort of happened.  I was listening to Radiohead, and it just sort of struck me.   To be honest, I hadn’t thought much about this band for a long while, so cranking it up, on vinyl,  while my wife does her morning run was an unplanned, unexpected–but not unknown–pleasure.

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

  1. Such a wonderful album — the band INTERPOL have done their very best to re-create this sound — and done not a bad job.
