Weekly Classic: Joy Division: She's Lost Control MP3

Joy Division are probably known mostly because of Ian Curtis' unfortunate suicide, but this Mancunian band recorded some of the most powerful post-punk music the world's ever seen. I've converted one of my favourite tracks, 'She's Lost Control' into a higher quality for you all to enjoy. Curtis killed himself because of many reasons. A contributing factor was a failing marriage, the subject around which this song is based. He also had epilepsy, which many thought influenced his almost comical dance style. For me, Ian broke through the conventions of the day. He felt the music and for the most part lived it too. This is some of the most emotional and evocative post-punk ever recorded, so stream it above.
