LCD Soundsystem 'No Love Lost'

Joy Division have become pretty much the biggest cult band in the world in the last few years, with the Control film, the excellent Joy Division documentary, and a whole slew of bands claiming to have been influenced by them (Interpol, Editors etc, who can all do the icy production and rumbly bass but seem to lack the weight. They ain't very good.)

LCD Soundsystem released this cover of No Love Lost, an early JD song, on their All My Friends single and digital 'bundle' in 2007. This LCD version is if anything more ragged than the original, punking up the riff, adding LCD drums, and dropping the admittedly fairly disturbing spoken section from the middle.
