Akira Rabelais, one of my best Myspace discoveries – remember that strange place? I love this video, too, which was not available back then – one simply couldn’t stream hour-long films online. Get the album Eisoptrophobia (which is a term for the fear of one’s own image in reflection) HERE.
“Atmosphere”, produced by Martin Hannett, was originally released in March 1980 on record label Sordide Sentimental as “Licht und Blindheit” (“Light and Blindness”), a France-only limited edition single featuring the track “Dead Souls” as the B-side. Following Ian Curtis’s death two months later, it was re-released as a 12″ single by record label Factory with “She’s Lost Control” as the B-side.
