  1. Being the record by which I discovered Joy Division (and possibly because of that fact) it is still my favourite. I didn't know it at the time, but it's a fairly random collection of studio out-takes from the band's three-year history (the original first vinyl disc) and a live recording of the band's final concert at Birmingham University in May (the original second vinyl disc)/5(15).
  2. At the end of Grant Gee's documentary "Joy Division," there is a great line -- "The albums are 'Unknown Pleasures' and 'Closer,' and everything else is just memory merchandising" -- and I suppose this album falls into the category of the latter. I bought the double LP "Still" as a year-old in looking for new musical horizons/5(31).
  3. Still was an attempt to sweep up any unreleased tracks along with a live recording of Joy Division's last concert. It was released partly in response to the number of Joy Division bootlegs that had appeared and the title alludes to this; the original bootleggers used stills to distil liquor during the prohibition era.
  4. Although many of the tracks can be found on other albums, the style (and often live) nature of what is on this album still make it a worthwhile addition to a Joy Division collection. Dead Souls almost feels like a suicide note by Curtis himself, a brilliant dark and depressing masterpiece, as others point out it /5(92).
  5. Two ways to choose, On a razor's edge, Remain behind, Go straight ahead Room full of people, room for just one, If I can't break out now, the time just won't come Two ways to choose, Which way to go, Decide for me, Please let me know Looked in the mirror, saw I was wrong, If I could get back to where I belong, where I belong Two ways to choose, Which way to go, Had thoughts for one Designs for.
  6. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Cassette release of Still on Discogs. Label: Factory - • Format: Cassette Album, Reissue • Country: Canada • Genre: Rock • Style: New Wave/5(2).
  7. You can tell. Joy Division’s brief for every song they ever wrote was to make it a ‘fast, dancey’ one. Some turned out that way and some didn’t, but it was evident to all four members that.
  8. Still, an Album by Joy Division. Released in on Valentim de Carvalho (catalog no. V FACT /20; Vinyl LP). Genres: Post-Punk.
  9. Something Must Break Still is a compilation album by Joy Division, Twenty Four Hours only appears on some cassette and vinyl versions of Still and has yet to be released.
