I want to dance right now…
Okay, and I have the song, “I dance to Joy Division” burning through my brain.Like, just burning though. Scotty is a huge Joy Division and New Order fan, I mean I ask myself sometimes, “Is there a bigger New Order and Joy Division fan than Scotty?” I mean, I think this, I ponder it, and I think not!

Super Short Sundays – Joy Division & New Order Edition
April 23, 2017
This week, I will be writing about another amazing experience with the members of Joy Division/New Order. These legendary musicians were in town for the Coachella weekends. They also played some other shows in between the weekends on the west coast. While Coachella was a right of passage for this music fan, it is just too much of a spectacle at this point and has lost some of it’s meaning for me to attend anymore. However, I think it is something a true music fan should experience once.
I was given a tip of where the band might be staying in town, and took my chances. I was lucky enough to meet Stephen and Gillian again. They were as kind as ever, and were nice enough to sign my items. Stephen finished my Joy Division piece, my Substance tape (this was my first New Order tape ever), and my “The Face” magazine with his face on the cover. Both Stephen and Gillian added their signatures to my singles for “Bizarre Love Triangle” and “Shellshock” that had been signed by Peter Hook earlier this year. Unfortunately, I did not see Bernard. Oh well, I can’t complain. Everything looks AWESOME!
In a related Joy Division note, I was able to finally meet Sam Riley. Sam portrayed Ian Curtis of Joy Division in the movie “Control.” Sam signed my poster beautifully and took a picture with me. Thank you to Stephen, Gillian, and Sam for making this music fan so HAPPY!
