Yeah, well I’ve got Joy Division oven gloves.
Gosh I sure do love Joy Division. This video of a steel drum band playing Transmission has been floating around recently. It’s so joyous!
Steel Drum band playing Transmission
One day I got bored and walked over to the science library to dig out the Oxford Dictionary of Astronomy or whatever they call that tome that contains the original of this image that Peter Saville copied and pasted onto the album jacket. I xeroxed it but never got it made into a T-shirt.
I’m sure the guys from whatever conglomerate owns the Joy Division catalog these days (I refuse to even find out which it is) would be happy to sue me for copyright infringement if I did get the shirt made, though.
The funny thing is, I was working on designing a pulsar detection computer at the time. (It’s my job, man.)
This is a visualizer in the style of the album cover — the actual waveform on the album is that of the first pulsar ever recorded, PSR B1919+21.
Ah right… post clarified, thanks.
just to further clarify, at the time of release the pulsar was known as CP 1919…
