“Punk enabled you to say ‘fuck you’, but somehow it couldn’t go any further. It was just a single, venomous one syllable, two-syllable phrase of anger. Sooner or later someone was going to want to say more than ”fuck you”. Someone was going to want to say ‘I’m fucked’. And it was Joy Division who were the first band to do that, to use the energy and simplicity of punk to express more complex emotions.”
normalpeoplescaremeoff asked: Hello there, I'm a big fan of Joy Division myself as well. Would you perhaps like me to submit/update this blog as well?
You’re welcome to submit as much as you like (and that goes for everyone else following this blog as well), but I’m pretty selective about what I put on here, mainly because I don’t want this to go the way of so many other Joy Division blogs that have been heavily saturated with Ian Curtis, Unknown Pleasures, and Love Will Tear Us Apart junk. Obviously I don’t update as often as I should, so I’ll probably end up putting a call out for people who want to help run things at some point.
