The scenes of Joy Division playing live are particularly good (and did I hear or read somewhere that the cast performed the songs?), to the extent that I was sorry that the OST didn't actually include these songs on it.
- Stealing the Spotlight: Our Favourite Musical BiopicsI did of course mean "Control", and not "Closer" in my earlier post!! I'm getting my JD references mixed up!
