The incels have spoken loud and clear: women should make sandwiches, not music. So, which album by wieners goes now?

Could never really get away with Joy Division. Mumbling Mr Bean on lead vocals and they're just too morose for me.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Forty-one years ago yesterday that Ian Curtis made a decision. Crazy long time ago.

Twenty four years old, what an insane, intense legacy.

Unknown Pleasures is overall my least favorite JD album, so despite disagreeing with Heston about them, I’m still voting the same.

I love Secondhand Daylight, and as long as it beats UP, I suspect they’d the best it can be expected to do considering this board’s taste and what it’s up against.
