Never even heard of them before but as I'm a fan of The Doors their music was a good listen. Your video pretty much captured the feel of the music and that time as well.

Hi Bob,
The Doors are a big favourite here, Joy Division's music is often compared to the Doors & Velvets but I dont see the connection. The era is late 70's to 80.

That takes me back.

Liked the video. Effects-wise, how much of it was you and how much of it was there before you got it?

from manchester, england.

their name was a complete misnomer - should have been (deep) depression division.

coming from manchester, playing such depressive, melancholy music it's no wonder their lead singer commuted suicide

btw - checked out your site and band - great songs - though i had to go direct to yt to see them?

Hey Derm, I have almost all of their stuff. When I say almost it because there is so much bootleg stuff out there. Ian Curtis did this crazy dance but I never saw many videos though. When I listened to their stuff I always realiszed their was someone more depressed than me :)) I read in a Joy Division book that they got their name from an area in the German concentration camp where guards had sex with their captives. This area was called Joy Division.

BTW I like you video you put together. The B/W makes the mood sombre.

Definitely Joy Division fans on this forum (speaking for myself, anyway). Big fan from way back.

Nice video.

There were a couple of Joy Division movies out in 2007. I caught the documentary (simply called Joy Division), which I enjoyed, but missed the dramatisation/movie Control. Is it any good?

@ Rob
All of the FX are mine.

Thanks, was ther a problem getting to the other songs?

Very little video material available unforunately

I loved the documentary was disappointed bythe film Control. I expected more as it was done by Anton Corbijn

Nicely done. Some of it reminded me of Yellow Submarine, of all things.

hi derm,

2 out of the 3 wouldn't play from your site - 'error loading file', but worked fine if searched 'the parlez' on youtube.

Thats an amazing remark, this current video exercise started out as
"Tomorrow Never Knows" by the Beatles of course. I am a huge fan.
I lost my way with it and dropped it for the time being. I will go back to it and Strawberry Fields at some stage. The TNK video featured elements from Yellow Submarine and I have used parts if it in the past. I particularly like the Eleanor Rigby section.

Thanks for that info, I will look into it.
