Joy Division @ Eindhoven

I was kind of bummed last autumn that Control, Anton Corbijn's Joy Division movie, didn't end up making its way to an Arcata area theater. Not that I was surprised- but I had bought into the hype surrounding the movie and would have preferred to see it on the big screen instead of waiting for the DVD. Well, maybe the novelty wore off. Or maybe I expected too much. It wasn't really the kind of film I was expecting. You can read why here.

In order to compensate for my slight disappointment, I dug up a Joy Division set from 1980 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The sound starts off kind of rough but is eventually worked out, making this one of the better JD boots out there. Check it out.
