Joy Division in Embrace's Home Entertainment 
It's Embrace's turn to submit to The Guardian's Home Entertainment section and lead singer Danny Macnamara takes the opportunity to explain the influence Joy Division had during his formative years: "There's a song called I Remember Nothing that I listened to about 40 times in a row when I was 17. The conviction in his voice took music to another level for me, and there was no sense of spectacle with Ian Curtis. Music can be a deeply serious thing if you've got what it takes to pull it off. Joy Division inspired a lot of goth bands that didn't have that fear; that look in their eyes that Ian Curtis had."
