Technova’s electronic cover version of Joy Division’s Atmosphere, finding light amongst Joy Division’s shade. This is a really good cover, with moments of beauty- lovely synths (showing the direction Bernard Sumner was already heading in 1980), dancey drums, squidgy bass and a blissed out, treated vocal replacing Ian Curtis’ sombre baritone. Assuming this Technova is the same Technova who were on Weatherall’s Emission Audio Output record label in the mid 90s, then this is the work of David Harrow, who also records as James Hardway. Weatherall and Harrow also recorded together as a fictional female techno artist Deanne Day (D and A, geddit) and Blood Sugar.
