A South African Take on Joy Division


Here's a track called "Control" by South African producer Spoek Mathambo, a re-interpretation of Joy Division's classic "She's Lost Control". Now I think I've heard everything!

Interesting audio, and yet visually very disturbing. I like it.
Right up there with 'Come to Daddy' for creepiness.

Makes me think of the Cab's "Sensoria" for some reason. Never been a big fan of drum and bass but the video is very compelling. Makes me long for the old SPK and Test Dept video days. Sigh...

Proximity... I got a bit of a Cabs vibe from it too, but thought I was crazy for thinking so...

It's really a weird mix! Guess that's why I like it so much!
Actually It makes me thing of a friend of mine from south africa, who was telling me about these guys he was hanging out with. They were the type of dreadlock-rasta type of guys, but listening to the Cure all the time... which seemed really strange to me...
But then, when you think about it, it's just all cliches one has in his mind...
