T.S. Eliot/Ian Curtis mashup

(poetry diary  226-4/4/17) Thinking of Eliot’s “The Wasteland” as I usually do at least once each April, due to the line

(I actually think February is the cruelest month, though many of my friends argue for March….) While Googling around for what’s interesting out there re: Eliot’s poem I found the strange video above. It’s a mashup of “The Wasteland” and the 2007 biopic “Control” from Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis.

It’s intriguing to watch how they work together….
