Joy Division Reissues

The story of Joy Division is relatively well-known these days. If you haven't heard of Joy Division then you have probably at least heard of New Order, which is the band formed by the three remaining members of Joy Division after lead singer Ian Curtis killed himself. Ian Curtis' suicide (he hanged himself the night before the band's first American tour) has made their music and story that much more mysterious and fascinating. There has even been a movie, 2007's Control, based on Ian's life. But the best news is that they are finally reissuing Joy Division's two proper studio albums (Unknown Pleasures and Closer) and one compilation (Still) tomorrow. Not only will all three albums be remastered, but each will include a extra disc of unreleased live performances. Here is the tracklisting for each record:
