Joy Division / New Order Tribute

I’ve posted a few of these songs before, (here, here and here; that first link also contains my other tributes, to Black Sabbath and the Beatles!) so I thought I’d round up a handful more and make a proper go of things. No introduction needed, pretty influential group of people the boys of Joy Division and New Order turned out to be. This mix is sort of for a friend who’s going through a funk and likes to cover Ian Curtis himself.

The first track is off the new, epic split between Toys That Kill and Grabass Charlestons. The Susanna cover is the most heartwrenchingly beautiful rendition of any song ever. Some of these are kind of rare, such as the Ted Leo song and the José González song from an Australian tour EP. The rest are mostly a scattering snuck into proper releases, except for the live and Peel session stuff. Long live the love.
