Video Of The Day – JOY DIVISION with Genial Stroke of Paranoia…

‘Digital’ by JOY DIVISION

jdbook
A couple of says ago I’ve read Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division, a splendid book
by co-founder and superb bassist Peter Hook. Great read, awesome band. And of course it evoked an irresistible urge to play some of their impactful music again, for the millionth time. Starting with the overwhelming song DIGITAL, one of their early tracks that turned me into the Manchester legends instantly. A monstrous bass riff and hyperkinetic beat to break steel with. The late, fabulous Ian Curtis seemed to fight a growing fear of social claustrophobia. Paranoid lyrics. It felt and, yes weirdly enough, still feels like he wanted to crush his anger with intense force, not wanting to give up. Desperate dynamite. Stroke of genius…



Feel it closing in,
Feel it closing in,
The fear of whom I call,
Every time I call,
I feel it closing in,
I feel it closing in,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out.

I feel it closing in,
As patterns seem to form.
I feel it cold and warm.
The shadows start to fall.
I feel it closing in,
I feel it closing in,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out,
Day in, day out.

I’d have the world around,
To see just whatever happens,
Stood by the door alone,
And then it’s fade away.
I see you fade away.
Don’t ever fade away.
I need you here today.
Don’t ever fade away.
Don’t ever fade away.
Don’t ever fade away.
Don’t ever fade away.
Fade away. Fade away.
Fade away. Fade away.
Fade away. Fade away.
Fade away.
