| 0 comments
Guests: 
Liz Feldman

Liz Feldman (Dead to Me) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's big Mother's Day Energy and his early dinner with his mom and the ultimate stepdad Brad, the authenticity of the portrayal of Orange County in Liz's new Netflix show Dead to Me, and the amazing donut people in Jesse’s neighborhood.

Plus, we get into the newly-named Jordan, Jesse, Go! Colosseum to see who is represented more in the audience -- people who have ridden three-wheeled motorcycles (or in a sidecar), people who have replica weapons from a film, or people who have had an encounter with a supernatural being!

EP85: Moby on Joy Division's "Closer" (1980)

The Album: Joy Division Closer (1980)

Moby has been in the game for over three decades, making punk, electronic, alt-rock, dance, and everything in between. When we heard he was coming on Heat Rocks, we had no idea what album he'd pick, but we knew it was going to be some absolute fire.

Joy Division were pioneers, blending genres and helping create and popularize the sound that would become post-punk. Unfortunately, Closer would be Joy Division's final album. On May 18th 1980, just weeks before Joy Division's first tour in America, lead singer Ian Curtis took his own life. Factory Records released the album a few months later, and the remaining members would go on to form New Order.

We sat down with Moby to talk about post-punk, the wildly varied music scene on the East coast in the 80s, and the shift from Joy Division to New Order. We chat about Ian's deteriorating mental wellness and Moby's own experiences playing with New Order and covering Joy Division songs. Grab a chair, this conversation goes deep.

Moby's new book, "Then It Fell Apart" is out now. Cop it at your local bookstore.
