P.J. Proby – Love Will Tear Us Apart (12″)

Not for the faint-hearted is this 1985 cover of the Joy Division classic! There is some input from Peter Hook but this is entirely in the style of Rock N Roll legend P.J. Proby, as he dips into Elvis amongst synths and sample stabs.

The very RAW live version goes into loads of different styles, I love the Motown vibe he gives it on the live take.

An Oddity indeed. I’d play it!
