Joy Division

VampChix had Derek Tatum, of Mondo Vampire fame, over on Wednesday (original post can be found here) to discuss vampire music and one of his selections was a song from the band Joy Division, called Day of the Lords. I hadn't heard of them before, shame on me, but in a weird coincidence I happened across a Playmobile video set to one of their songs when I cruised around one of my favorite sites, The Awl.

Take a look:

This is a different song than the one Derek chose but I thought it was funny and I liked the sound. Turns out that Joy Division started jamming in the 70's, which means that I should have heard of them by now but my head has been jammed under a rock, and they have a dark, gritty sound that I totally love. My thanks to Derek for turning me on to the band!

Check out this vid that I found for Day of the Lords:
