This week, what is considered, one of the best music biopics ever made, Control, is set to hit the US theaters. The movie follows Ian Curtis (Riley), the enigmatic frontman of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23.
The biopics soundtrack is made out of old, classic Joy Division sons and covers performed by various artists, one of these songs is the band’s hit “Shadowplay” covered b [tag]The Killers[/tag]. Is it any good? Unfortunately not really, Brandon’s voice is totally out of key and simply the band just doesn’t sync very well to the JD vibe. You can listen to Shadowplay here. The cover will be included in the upcoming Killers B sides collection “Sawdust” scheduled for 11/13 on Island.
