Hot from me naturally....one of the most influential post punk bands, if not THE most influential, and a great introduction to them from any young music fan that is curious about the legacy that was Joy Division.

Curious NIN fans may like to note that the song "Dead Souls" is the very song NIN covered for the film soundtrack to "The Crow"

Saw a picture on a BMX website a while back of a single quilt cover with the Unknown Pleasures design on it. Looks mint.

Never seen it since and assume it's not an actual for sale product but always like to mention it just in case anyone knows otherwise. I'll see if I can find the picture.

Wasn't sure whether your comment related to a duvet cover that had been done that I have not heard of, or whether it was an obscure joke relating to unknown pleasures in bed lol.

Sounds interesting, might be a bit too dark though for our kingsize bed in here lol.

Yeah, the only thing I have found is that TOP GOTH "used to" do Bands Duvet Covers, its in the menu section on the left of their website, but none available, maybe whoever on that BMX forum got it from that and that company no longer do duvet sets.

Great find!
Joy division were the real thing.
Dead souls great track with one of the best intros ever.
Love will tear us apart peel session is my favorite version,shame 'Novelty' and 'At a later date' (warsaw) arent in the track listings there my favorite joy division tracks,love all the versions.
If you think you know something about music and you dont have anything by joy division then think again,you have to buy this,it should be manditory,the music sounds fresh now as it did back then and will never age,the songs are eternal.

Just in case you missed it, check out the 2008 documentary 'joy division'. There was even stuff in it I hadn't seen before and I thought I'd seen it all. Brilliant doc.

Back on topic.
Every fan will already have all these tracks in numerous guises, but as an 'in' to this band for newbies, it's not a bad compilation.
HOT.

Great book by the NME journalist who was there at the beginning and end,his great reviews too.
Always loved this iconic image of the band taken by anton corbjin,who if a few of you dont know directed the film control,if anyone knows where you can buy this print let me know.
Yes the documentary is superb check it out.
Lets not forget the 5th member of joy division martin hannet.
