A Virtual Learning Experience

Unknown Pleasures

She's Lost Control, Shadowplay

A collection of songs which gave an insight into the workings of Ian Curtis’s mind. There’s not much to say about this Joy Division album that hasn’t been said already, I mean, Unknown Pleasures is one of those albums that everyone has heard of, everyone knows the band and everyone knows that cover! It says a million and one things but nothing I can say can do it justice. A pure work of genius.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged like Gorillaz and Talking Heads.
