THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Joy Division – “Interzone”.

“Four twelve windows, ten in a row…

Me singing the main vocal while Ian does the low, backing vocal. Ian was very good like that; there seemed to be no ego with him. He was perfectly happy to let you sing, to let anyone sing. In fact he’d encourage you to do it. He was very, very generous in that respect. Strangely enough we were always trying to get Barney to sing but he was never interested.
This was the song that they tried to get us to do at RCA. The cover of “Keep On Keepin’ On” – well, not the actual song itself but the inspiration for it – and you can hear the riff in it a little.”
