Uncut navigates you to today’s YouTube treasure
Everyday, we bring you the best thing we’ve seen on YouTube — a great piece of archive footage, a music promo or a clip from one of our favourite movies of TV shows.
Today: Watch Joy Divison performing “She’s Lost Control” and a fantastic version of “Shadowplay” in a pub in 1979.
The opening credits say it is filmed in “Altringham: A suburb of Manchester” and it is directed by Malcolm Whitehead.
The footage is filmed in beautifully textured Super 8mm and lasts a superb 7 minutes.
Ian Curtis really can dance like a kung fu robot.
You don’t get pub bands like this nowadays.
