THE KILLERS Shadow Playing With JOY DIVISION Live…

Covering Manchester‘s legends JOY DIVISION is not the obvious thing to do. Their sombre darkness, their profound sound and most of all the late Ian Curtis’ voice and unique way of performing makes it somehow hard to interpret their songs. American indie pop stars THE KILLERS took the challenge and covered SHADOWPLAY for the soundtrack of Control, the 2007 biographical film about the troubled Curtis and his dramatic death. Afterwards the band played it live too. This 2009 rendition (Royal Albert Hall, London) is pretty good…

Shadowplay was one of the highlights of Joy Division’s
debut/masterpiece album Unknown Pleasures
