Total:  

 From Joy Division..  

 -

 .. to New Order  

 -

A  new 18-song compilation covering tracks by Joy Division to New Order — titled 'Total: From Joy Division to New Order'  is set to also include a previously unreleased New Order song called “Hellbent.”

Due out in June , the compilation is the first to combine the Ian Curtis lead Joy Division material with several New Order tracks on the same release.

The new 'Total' disc opens with five of Joy Division’s best known tracks (”Transmission,” “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” “Isolation,” “She’s Lost Control” and “Atmosphere”) before segueing into a chronological run of a dozen New Order singles plus the new song, of which little is known at this point.

Tracklist: 

Total: From Joy Division to New Order

1. Joy Division, “Transmission” 
2. Joy Division, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” 
3. Joy Division, “Isolation” 
4. Joy Division, “She’s Lost Control” 
5. Joy Division, “Atmosphere” 
6. New Order, “Ceremony”
7. New Order, “Temptation” 
8. New Order, “Blue Monday” 
9. New Order, “Thieves Like Us” 
10. New Order, “The Perfect Kiss” 
11. New Order, “Bizarre Love Triangle” 
12. New Order, “True Faith” 
13. New Order, “Fine Time” 
14. New Order, “World In Motion"
15. New Order, “Regret” 
16. New Order, “Crystal” 
17. New Order, “Krafty” 
18. New Order, “Hellbent” 

Until recently I could easily state that I've always been more of a fan of tunes by New Order over the few choices by Joy Division.  But, I also remember being amazing on a previous thread by how many Rewinders at that time were devoted Joy Division fans.

 -

And of course, I've known for a long time that my good pal NowhereGirl was a huge Joy Division fan and intrigued by the backstory behind the tragedy that surrounded Ian Curtis. However, I never quite understood it all until she convinced me to watch the movie "Control".  

Wow... I must say that "Control" is a rather dark, but hauntingly beautiful film!  It gave me such a better understanding of the curiosity so many seem to have about Ian Curtis and his tortured soul.  As well as some insight into why he committed suicide just when Joy Division was about to become incredibly successful.

The performance of Sam Riley as Ian Curtis was just downright amazing.. especially after Ronnie told me that the actors in the movie actually sang and played the tunes for real.  Both Samantha Morton and Alexandra Maria Lara were excellent in very different roles that were focal points of the movie.  My fav scene was when Morton's character questioned Riley in the street and the tune "Love Will Tear Us Apart" starts to play.

Also, the DVD extras included a performance by the real Joy Division which made the movie seem that much more haunting for me to experience.  After watching "Control".. I have a new appreciation for the music of Joy Division and the genius of the darkly troubled Ian Curtis.

Totally realize this new 18-song compilation only has one new tune of interest to most devoted fans.. but I highly recommend it if you are similar to myself and just starting to truly appreciate some of these tunes.

I actually heard New Order's "Temptation" on the radio this morning and it is currently stuck in my mind.

valdude, great post! [Smile]

i'm glad you enjoyed Control. you totally got everything that i found to be so awesome about this movie.

the acting performances were awesome, as well as the band performances.

val, the scene you mentioned where 'Love Will Tear Us Apart" plays was done really well. and Sam's wardrobe throughout the movie.. well.. Ian's style, i guess is way cool...plus it being filmed in black and white!

another really intense scene in the movie, was where Ian was unable to go out on the stage and sing, he was having major anxiety, and feeling the pressure from the crowd as they are cheering for him..but when he decides to suck it up and sing (Disorder), he quickly runs off stage and the crowd starts to go nuts.

great extras on the dvd and the Joy Division Documentary is great as well.

thanks for the info on the new cd. i didn't know this will be the first time their songs were together on one mix..that's great!

btw, i LOVE that movie poster you put up there, Val! the dvd case is a foil case with the same colors, black, gray and pink..same picture. [Smile]

I am just now getting into JOY DIVISION, which is really strange. I dont know why no one never turned me onto them as a teenager (my older sister got me into NEW ORDER)...I think I would have 'gotten' them more as a teenager , they were depressing and so was I! I think thats why in my early 20s and in my 30s I preferred NEW ORDER: more uplifting and more 'hope'.

I just recently watched CONTROL about a month ago and whle I DO higly recommend I just wanna warn people I felt TERRIBLE for about a week after I watched it! Its just ssooooo sad. Now whenever I hear JOY DIVISION my heart just breaks.

Has anyone seen 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE? I have it on ny list but I keep putting it off because I cant imagine going through "watching Ian die" again!

^ Also....have you guys heard SHE WANTS REVENGE? Its a new-er band that sounds like JOY DIVISION was probably #1 in their books. If these guys claim theyve never heard JOY DIVISION tapes thay are LYING! The influence is so freakin strong in their music!

joy division are one of the four bands i consider essential listening for me. i love everything about this band.

i really dug control. i always loved ian's style, especially when he sang. this movie captured that well.

and i love joy divisions version of ceremony.

i like new order too, just not as much.

ha, my father told me the other day "we watched one of your favorite movies".. i was like, "which one?"...

he said "Control." i was like, "right on, Dad!" [Big Grin]

then he tells me, he had never heard of Joy Division before.

i couldn't believe my ears, because he's a musician!!! i said "reeeeeally,...what....?"

he said after watching the movie, he immediately went to the internet and starting reading everything about the group and Ian.

so crazy how this movie has that effect on all of us, huh??? [Smile]

i think it's totally cool. there are a lot of people that know New Order's music, but had no idea about JD. then it's like, story time! haha.. i love talking about JD and this movie. such a terrific film. i am glad my parents liked it, but was still very shocked my father had never heard of them before. well.. he's never been much of a punk, or post punk music lover, but still.. i thought he knew everything ha.

^--- Recently watched this! Great little documentary on Joy Division with interviews from the surviving members of the band that went on to form New Order. Incredible footage from performance by Joy Division and an indepth look at the musical genius that was Ian Curtis.

Thought it was a cool tribute to the memory of Ian Curtis that New Order went almost 18 years without playing a Joy Division tune in concert. That changed in a few years back and you get a real treat though only a snippet towards the end of the documentary.

I would still recommend watching the hauntingly beautiful movie "Control" first, but it was amazing listening to the band stories in the documentary and remember those scenes in the movie.

I have to thank NowhereGirl for guiding my journey into the world of Joy Division.

And I totally wanna see New Order in concert again someday!
