My Joy Division moment

January 30, 2009

It was a warm spring evening – why when you look back, does it alway seem to be spring. A six form party. The boys watch football – FA Cup final replay, Man City vs Spurs and that Ricky Villa goal- the girls dance. Later the boys (well some of them) dance too. Someone has the new Joy Division album. I borrow it, take it home. Head spinning a little from drink – still not quite used to it. Randomly pick a side. Heart and Soul -what will burn? 24 Hours and a baseline that makes we want to weep, (still makes me want to weep). The Eternal – which I skip, still do. Then Decades starts with a noise  like two metal bars being banged together in a distant universe. The song ends. I play it again. And again. And again. 

I’m still playing it.
