More Joy Division Musings, Fear of Nukes in the 1980s and Songs for Bill

We start off exploring some more Joy Division influences and play another couple of tracks from Ceremony's new Joy Division influenced album The L Shaped Man. Then we dig into some 1980s music from the band The Sound that reflected fear and anger about nuclear weapons that permeated music during that decade. Sadly the weapons are still all around us despite the efforts of so many people to end their proliferation. The trilogy of songs by the Sound really capture that sense of frustration and fear. Finally, some songs for Bill Green. G'night Papa.
