the great album art week- Joy Division

The first time I heard Joy Division was some years ago when my first love played it for me one lazy afternoon. The songs that stick out there are ones like "love will tear us apart" and "she's lost control again" (a bit morbid) ...Anyway, no matter- my appreciation of their moody melodies remains untouched! I happened to see the Unknown Pleasures cover on a shirt (it was apparently popular enough for shoes, too!) and I have to put it down as one of my favorite graphic design works of all time. If you don't know the band, have a listen and then look at the covers again. The images and music are very similar. I like that.
