Week 42 – TBT 2017 – Transmission

There’s been a lot written recently to raise awareness of mental health issues.  Earlier this year I posted a couple of these TBT articles because rock stars had taken their own lives due to poor mental health, and I thought I’d include this track featuring Ian Curtis, the late singer of Joy Divison, who committed suicide at the age of 23. After he died, the band carried on with new members and a new name – New Order.

This song came to my attention a few years back when SLF covered it at a gig as one of their encores. I enjoyed it so much I rushed home to listen to this original, and loved it. Any time I hear this song, and Joy Division in general, I think about Ian Curtis, gone too soon.
