Lupe Fiasco Pays Tribute To Joy Division
With his new Japanese band...
In The Jaws Of The Lords Of Death is a free LP that will see Lupe take on a British accent to complete the effect.
He told Complex.com: "The true inspiration for Japanese Cartoon is the band Joy Division. You ever watch footage of Joy Division singing? Frontman Ian Curtis is like a straight nerd. And he doesn't look like the rock and roll type.
"But when he got on stage, he became a completely different animal, like he was having a seizure on stage.
“When he was performing he just threw himself into the performance, but when he came off stage he was a mild-mannered person. Japanese Cartoon is like a tribute to Joy Division and Ian Curtis."
