Joy Divi…Interpol – Lights

With Editors now preoccupied with becoming the worlds most famous New Order tribute band, the burden is upon Interpol to become Joy Division 2.0. Latest release ‘Lights’, from forthcoming newie imaginatively entitled ‘Interpol’, could quite convincingly be Ian Curtis and co, had they invested money in a time machine and expensive production, instead of making some of the most forward thinking rock tracks of our time. With a video featuring the consumption suspicious white bodily fluids, face paint, and a wardrobe’s worth of bondage gear, I can only assume that the director was trying to depict an average night round at Dale Whintons (Ba dum tish). Watch, listen, yawn, shrug above.
