Thanks all. Appreciate your comments. In all honesty I only really did mine to see what I could do using an IPad as I don't actually have any musical equipment anymore. Some of the other bits and pieces are just ideas although a couple of things were actually written 25+ years ago.

mike - only just had a chance to hear Shadowplay but I like it. Similarly the tracks that Repoman ( I think) posted are very good. not trying to sound like JD but the feel of it is right - the rawness I suppose.

Anyone mentioned Therapy?'s cover of Isolation yet.

It was on their Troublegum album - replaced the synth with thrashing guitars while managing to retain the hopelessness of the original.

What do you all think of Grace Jones' version of She's Lost Control?  It's a little to over the top camp for my taste.

I'm not especially interested in covers, but LCD Soundsystem's version of No Love Lost (the lost JD masterpiece) is fun;

I think it's one of the very very very few Joy Division covers that is worth mentioning.
O.K. I'm deep into Reggae too and I admire Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespear.

They made it a song of their own and not to forget Grace Jones contribution. Without insulting the original.
For my part, the most annoying cover-versions of Joy Division songs were commited by "independant" "trustworthy" bands and musicians. Everything on this compilation published by factory with liner-notes from Tony Wilson was CRAP. They didn't understand the songs, they didn't understand the band, they didn't understand Hannett. They made Joy Division songs sound like any uninspired post-punk, "alternative" band, which has nothing to say. In a way, this is a kind of art: to get such incredible good songs and make them sound like idealess mainstream independant alternative crap.
To be honest: I even prefer Paul Young's version of lwtua to any of this uninspired mindless soul-less CRAP.
Nouvelle Vague is o.k., too.

I like it. Really one of the very very very few good covers.
This woman has such a deep voice, it must be a harmonizer. Let's discuss it now!!!

Not serious (about the harmonizer)...

Antic Clay is interesting too.

Charles de Goal and Calexico: whenever I think things can't get worse someone comes along and proves me wrong. Hate them all!
Dessau: the singer ruins it and the wrong bass part, too.

Gonna print me a HATE T-Shirt...

The correct running order was:

Dead Souls
Twent Four Hours
Warsaw
Atmosphere.

Like it a lot. One more time it makes evident what is so special about JD. I like the way the drummer is shown disproportionately. If one is listening to the song it seems to be rather calm and introspective, ridden by the melancholic open string chordlike bass motive. But the drums - as the bass during the verses - are disproportionately aggressively. Same is true somehow for LWTUA.
They do the song justice and the vocals are good, too.

Susanna and The Magical Orchestra must be mentionned in this thread somewhere, but I didn't see it.  I like their version of LWTUA - slowing down songs and singing them plaintively has become cliched now every tv bank advert features a song treated in such a way, but this makes me wonder how it would have sounded if JD had gone for a less (contrasting with the lyrics) upbeat sound...
