The headline above is correct! On March 11, 2014 at Carnegie Hall in New York, as part of a benefit concert for the Tibet House, a once in a lifetime pairing happened on stage: Bernard Sumner of New Order and Joy Division with Iggy Pop! The pair sang Joy Division’s “Transmission” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart” as well as the New Order rarity “Californian Grass.”
Videos of the later two songs have not only been posted on According2g.com, but they’ve gone viral (with “Love Will Tear Us Apart” achieving over 35,000 views in the first 24 hours) and have ended up on nearly every major music publication from NME to Rolling Stone to Spin Magazine, and although those sites merely posted the videos with no credit given to me for taking/posting the video, it’s still a huge honor.
As a result, I’m giving you, my dear readers yet another world exclusive – Iggy Pop and Bernard Sumner of New Order and Joy Division performing “Transmission.” Websites, if you want to post the video, please give credit where credit is due – not just for me, but across the board and at all times! Removing the video and keeping it private for me and my readers is as easy as the click of a button.
Videos of Iggy Pop (performing “Nightclubbing” and Patti Smith performing “Perfect Day” by Lou Reed) will be coming soon, so stay tuned!!!!!

New York! Make sure you don’t miss a trio of great artists under one roof. Jonathan LeVine in New York is showing not one but 3 exhibits through June 16, 2012.
First up is “Luminosity in the Dark Rift” by Doze Green (see photo above). Fun fact about Doze Green: in the early 80’s he was one of the original b-boy members of the Rock Steady Crew.
In the center gallery is “Transmission” by Eric White. The paintings reference films set in New York City as White reinterprets cinematic car sequences as a means of exploring film and dream narrative, metaphysics, psychological dysfunction and the limits of perception.
Last and certainly not least, in the 3rd gallery is “In Praise of Rust” by Kevin Cyr. Cyr paints old vehicles seen on the streets of New York—primarily vans and commercial delivery trucks—covered in graffiti, rust, scratches, scuffs, dents and other marks of distinction. For fans of graffiti and street art, you’ll see many familiar stickers and tags that Cyr has recreated in his paintings including the work of Neck Face (as pictured above).
Don’t miss this great exhibit featuring the works of Doze Green, Eric White and Kevin Cyr at Jonathan LeVine Gallery (located at 529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor) in New York. These works are on display until June 16, 2012.
