Thanks to our friends at Madman, we have five copies of the Kurt Cobain documentary, About A Son, to give away to randomly selected Lost At E Minor subscribers.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply be a Lost At E Minor subscriber and leave a message under this post saying ‘Joy, Joy, Joy’ or words to that effect. We’ll announce the winners on Friday morning New York time.

In 1976 four young men from ruined, post-industrial Manchester, England went to see the Sex Pistols. They formed a band, Joy Division. Three years later it was a matter of art, life and death. Now thirty years later, they are enjoying a larger audience and more influence than ever before with a profound legacy that resonates fiercely in today?s heavily careerist music industry and over-mediated pop culture. Pieced together from archival footage as well as new interviews with the remaining band members and musical experts, Joy Division is the definitive documentary about this influential and timeless band.

The DVD includes more than an hour of additional clips, interviews and outtakes from the documentary, plus the original theatrical trailer.
