LEGENDARY MISERABLISTS Joy Division are to be honoured by the release of a Zune mp3 player with the Peter Saville artwork for the Unknown Pleasures album on the back.
The black 80GB bit of Vole gear will also come pre-installed with the Joy Division rockumentary also called Unknown Pleasures which tells the life of the band and its enigmatic and unfortunate frontman, Ian Curtis.
The exclusive Zune is following in the footsteps of Apple with its U2 versions of the Ipod. The only difference is that the band is not so big, but is infinitely less smug than the sanctimonious / smug combination that is U2 and Apple.
Only 500 Joy Division Zunes being made, which if they sell the lot should increase sales of the Zune by nearly 50 times. They will cost $399.
One has to wonder if someone who likes Joy Division would want to be seen dead with a Zune, or would they rather string themselves up from the rafters in a terraced house in Manchester. µ
