Spoek Mathambo - "Control" (Joy Division)


"Control," fifth video from Spoek Mathambo's debut album Mshini Wam, is a Dark-Wave/[Township] House cover of the [1979] Joy Division classic, "She's Lost Control."
For the music video, Spoek has collaborated with one of South Africa's most celebrated photographers, Pieter Hugo & cinematographer Michael Cleary. It explores the world of township cults, street preaches and teen gangs and was shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town. The cast is mainly made up of the neighborhood kids who run their own dance troop - "Happy Feet."
