Jah Division - Dub Will Tear Us Apart.mp3

I think this is by far the most interesting cover version of a Joy Division track that I have heard, although it does not have the intensity of the Grace Jones track posted by Le-Riff earlier. There has been literally hundreds of cover versions of Joy Division tracks including most notably "She's Lost Control" Grace Jones, The Distillers "No Love Lost" and Doves "Transmission". However the majority of these covers predictably are of Love Will Tear Us Apart, what makes this one different is it blends the swagger of reggae fuses it with the darkness and despair of Ian Curtis mixes in a few kraftwork like electronics adds just a few drops of laidback bassline hey presto you have an unique and intriguing cover that you can't help warming too, listen to this and I dare you not to be impressed.
