Was supposed to be helping out with a DCA event this afternoon, the Big Draw at DPM park. It had to be called off due to the pissing rain, though.

Instead I went to see Control, the Joy Division biopic. It doesn't really add much to the sorry tale except to write another chapter of rock-star mythology in Ian Curtis' name. A shame, as I did enjoy Deborah Curtis' book, and the scenes of live music are quite exciting. Toby Kebbell steals every scene as Rob Gretton. This review from the Guardian Guide gets it about right, with praise a bit more qualified than in other write-ups. "He's certainly lost control now", indeed.

DJing at the Union later for Freak Scene. Not been darkening those doors in a good long while, and who knows, it might even be fun.
