Disney Abandon Joy Division T-Shirt Plan

The dark, wondrous lyrics of Ian Curtis, the clanging guitars and throbbing bass of industrial Manchester... and a cartoon mouse. It was never going to work was it?

Disney have had to abandon plans for a T-shirt in the style of the cover of Joy Division’s seminal album ‘Unknown Pleasures’. The design, featured above, shows the iconic Mickey Mouse motif grafted into the style of the 1979 record’s artwork, however after complaints from Joy Division fans, the American conglomerate has crumbled and taken the shirts out of circulation.

We cannot confirm at this stage whether or not Peter Hook had anything to do with the heinous, capital-driven idea.
