David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by Joy Division.
A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”

To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, can this picture of the man that started it all get a million notes?
77 milion people watched it yesterday, what is 1 milion for us. Let’s do this.
It’s a testament to his work, and the show, that this has got so many notes so fast. I saw the post not a few hours ago, and it had about half the 22,000 or so it has now.
I’m the Doctor - the original, you might say.
Let’s also take a moment to celebrate Verity Lambert, the woman who produced Doctor Who.And Waris Hussein, the first directorAnd Ron Grainer who wrote the theme music:And Delia Derbyshire, who took that original melody and used ground breaking techniques to make it into the iconic DOOO WEEEEE OOOOO we all know and love:
It got better.
If I had access to a TARDIS… All I would do is hang out and chop up tapes with Delia Derbyshire.
