[Friday On The Turntable] Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

For those of you that follow my blog on Facebook, you'll recall that each Friday I post a featured record that I'm currently enjoying. From now, I am filming short videos discussing a brief history of the record, favorite tracks and what it means to me. The videos will be embedded below, and you can also subcribe to my youtube channel here.

This week's featured album is Joy Division's 1979 debut LP, Unknown Pleasures. Check out my discussion on the video below. Please enjoy, and feel free to leave me your thoughts on this record. Cheers!

  1. Good job man! I'm really enjoying these vinyl video posts. They're fun to watch over breakfast--it's like a morning talk show for music geeks. :)

    BTW, when Control was in the early pre-production stages, Anton Conbijn said that he was going to base it mainly around Debbie's book. However, since its release a few people (including Peter Hook) have said that she wasn't happy with the end result. What did you think of it?

  2. Haha! Thanks Jonathan! Happy to see that you are enjoying them. There are several others - if you haven't noticed - that I don't end up posting here on my blog, so be sure to subscribe over on my YT channel.

    Thanks for the info on Control. I have it sitting here, and keep wanting to watch it again... but it's so intense. I think I've seen it twice and have enjoyed it both times, but like I said... it's an intense viewing, and even before you see it the first time, you know how it ends.

    I am REALLY looking forward to Peter Hook's upcoming book about JD. Actually, if I remember correctly, you are in Europe - so perhaps it's already available there? Do you know about it?

    Anyways, thanks for commenting and watching.
    Talk to you soon,
