Local Love: Jam Division

Artist: Jam Division Song: "Transmission"

My profile in last week's paper explains why you'd be smart to see Jam Division soon — like, say, tonight at The Summit or Saturday at Used Kids — if you like Joy Division, dub or any music that massages the wrinkles in your brain. At MySpace you can stream a rehearsal version of "Transmission" to hear Ian Curtis' frantic cry of "Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance to the radio!" melted and stretched and molded into something else quite stirring. Warning: Not for the short-attention-spanned among us.
