Even though these songs weren't on Fandango Records, I included them here anyway.
What happens when two Jews who used to play in Adam West get together to record a couple early Joy Division cover songs for fun? Well, it's GOY DIVISION, of course! Singer Jake Starr and guitarist Dan-O Deckelman, with the help of The Rats from Norfolk, Va., have put together a kosher supergroup of biblical (Old Testament, naturally) proportions! With a cover sleeve that spoofs the insanely rare Sordide Sentimental Joy Division "Licht und Blindheit" 7" that came out decades ago, this single will undoubtedly raise the musical awareness of all the unfortunate kids born too late to appreciate the genius of Joy Division.
