Mouse, Mouse Will Tear Us Apart

Pitchfork reports that Disney is selling a Mickey Mouse t-shirt based on Joy Division, specifically the iconic cover of Unknown Pleasures. Get yours now; I predict this thing will not be on sale for long.* I suspect some graphic designer was having one over on the suits upstairs.

Update: * Indeed, it is already listed as sold out. And I notice that the Disney site no longer makes any mention of Joy Division. Pitchfork previously quoted the Disney listing for the shirt as follows: “Inspired by the iconic sleeve of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album, this Waves Mickey Mouse Tee incorporates Mickey’s image within the graphic of the pulse of a star. That’s appropriate given few stars have made bigger waves than Mickey!” Now it simply reads: “This Waves Mickey Mouse Tee incorporates Mickey’s image within the graphic of the pulse of a star. That’s appropriate given few stars have made bigger waves than Mickey!

All of which presents yet another opportunity to post one of the loveliest songs ever written.
