I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling, feeling, feeling

A Joy Division movie is apparently being made

I suppose it’s nice to see them get some recognition… at least more than “Hey, these guys sound like Interpol!” Which is a great observation, I might add. Shitbags.

Ya know, you would think there would be a documentary or something already produced, but I haven’t heard of one yet. I wasn’t aware they were that obscure of a band, though. Is it just the whole indie-emo flavor of the month thing that is getting people riled up over them?

Don’t they deserve more than that? I mean, I’m not sure what I would have done in those rocky teenage years if I didn’t have Joy Division to lean on. They’re every self-pitying recluse’s dream band. I take that back—I know what I would have done in those teen years. I probably would have found something more productive to do than drink vodka in the dark and roll around on the floor with “Disorder,” repeating in the CD player. But still, they helped. Thanks, Ian Curtis.

Hopefully the movie will be decent and on the factual side. I don’t know of any video footage ever taken of the band, so I’ll bet the movie is as good as it’s going to get.
