Nothing new here for fans of Joy Division/New Order and quite frankly, a very droll read. In reading so many of these postpunk-era memoirs, I am struck with how petty everyone has become. Here Sumner claims to have come up with the name, concept and much of the iconic cover art of JD (despite many claims to the contrary elsewhere).
