Joy Division - Disorder (live)
I’m really not usually into live recordings, like there are really very few that I really like, but I can say without any hesitation, that this is one of the best live recordings ever. This whole album is just brutal, 65 minutes of Stephan Morris going fucking nuts. I cannot imagine how on earth he managed the stamina to do what he did night after night. Curtis’ voice @2:55 always gets me, too. In a way, I almost think I like live Joy Division better than the studio recordings, but I mean, they’re really very different, the studio recordings are much less frantic and there is more of that really uncomfortable ‘space’ in them, like they were playing inside a vacuum somehow. Regardless of the recording, this song kicks ass, and will probably always be one of my favorite bass lines ever.
