Tropical Transmission

Posted July 26th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

Ok, two friends have now shown this to me, and it’s pretty amazing. You’ve always wanted to hear a Caribbean steel drum version of Joy Division’s “Transmission”, right? Well, here you go. Steel Harmony tips its hat to the local scene in Manchester with this extremely well-executed version of the Joy Division classic as part of the Procession in Manchester. I’m not sure the crowd knows what’s being played, which makes this video even more amusing. Not sure if Ian Curtis would be proud, either, but I’m positive the jittery camera work would have triggered a fit. [link via The Awl]
