Over in London, the Japanese-inspired fast food chain Yo! Sushi is selling Joy Division sushi (PDF) named after one of the Brit band’s most well known songs. The “Love Will Tear Us Apart” bento box contains salmon and tuna and retails for GBP6.50; other purchases include a George Michael-esque “I Want Your Sex” sesame seared salmon sashimi and the “Love Me Tender” meat bento box. You see, they’re all named after pop songs. However, as Epicurious notes, Joy Division’s singer did hang himself shortly after recording the song. A bit of a sushi comedown, that.
We also recently interviewed Sushi Economy author Sasha Issenberg.
