Jah Rule.

Having just watched the DVD of Control, the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division by Anton Corbijn, I thought I’d post up these cover versions. They follow on very nicely from RAW’s Electronic Dub post in that they are Dub Reggae versions of ‘Transmission’ and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’.

Reggae has a tradition of doing cover versions of classic tracks that goes back to the sixties and early Ska recordings. No track is too important and no track too sacred that it can’t get the Dub Reggae treatment.

The artists involved here are the amusingly monikered Jah Division. This EP came out a few years ago in 2004 On The Social Registry label. Selassi I!

This works so well! It's amazing no one thought to do this with these songs ages ago, given how much space there is in the original Martin Hannett productions.
