Live_Transmission:
Joy Division Reworked

****
“a rich and urgent new suite utterly in tune with Curtis’ vivid sense of urban isolation, but updated for the 21st century.”
The Scotsman

****
“lush and monumental… a fine contemporary tribute to the band’s still-potent fusion of doomy melodrama and sleek modernism.”
The Times

****
“If Curtis hadn’t died you can’t help but wonder if this the kind of thing they would be doing today.”
The Independent

****
“brutalist… romantic… imaginative”
The Sydney Morning Herald
