Ever year there seem to be more people covering Joy Division. Here’s two of last years more diverse examples.
June Tabor & Oysterband’s album Ragged Kingdom was one of last years stand out album’s, it literally won shed loads of awards but probably passed you by as traditional folk probably ain’t on your radar. Stand out track on it (for me anyway, probs not for the beardy sandal wearing brigade) was this cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart:
Secondly, South African Rap / Afrobeat artist Spoek Mathambo’s album Mshini Wam, also released last year included this upbeat version of Control.
Never forgotten, always remembered.
