1061. ceremony

“Spring 1980.  I first hear of a band called Joy Divison.  Apparently, they’re like a new wave Doors. Which is all I need to hear. I head down to Quintessence Records prepared to pay big bucks for an import. Except, ‘Sorry,’ says the guy at the counter, ‘we’re sold out since the main guy killed himself.’  Ouch.  Maybe six months later, we start to hear New Order , the band that rose from those ashes – cool and eerie and sounding exactly like the future.” (Philip Random)
