Joy Division – Transmission (1979)

Pretty much every Joy Division track deserves a place on this blog, so why this one?

Apart from being one of the blueprints for all that is good in post-punk, alternative and indie music, it’s one of the few tracks that has been well captured live on TV.

I also have fond memories of my eldest lad, when aged 5 or 6, singing this song while waiting at the front door for me one day …

Dance. Dance. Dance. Dance. Dance …. to the radio

Three versions, live on “Something Else” in September 1979, a Playmobil stop motion animation version (no, really) and then the fantastic version taken from the John Peel session – unbelievable guitar and drums.
