Wilson Pickett sang it, and now you can do it - wait 'til the midnight hour. The wicked Pickett, pictured in a 1966 photo by William "PoPsie" Randolph with a pre-fame Jimi Hendrix and another ace guitarist, Cornell DuPree, was singing about action in the boudoir in his 1965 hit, “In the Midnight Hour.” We're talking about looking at pictures this weekend at the Annenberg Space for Photography. PHOTOS: 'Who Shot Rock & Roll' The Century City venue is staying open until midnight Friday and Saturday to accommodate an anticipated closing rush for “Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present.” The exhibition, organized by the Brooklyn Museum, features the work of more than 100 photographers, including Diane Arbus, Ed Colver, Anton Corbijn, Henry Diltz, David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz and Linda McCartney.

Then a photographer for an English music newspaper, Corbijn studied up on the band by listening to "October," their second album, as he flew from London to New Orleans for the shoot. He wasn't much impressed with what he heard on the cassette, but he really wanted to visit New Orleans. His photos from that day show four very young, but assured, souls.

More than three decades have passed since Joy Division emerged from the cultural rubble of post-industrial Manchester, England to rechannel punk rock's sound and fury into something more sublime. Over the group's fleeting, three-year existence, its lyrics connected with fans by conveying emotional isolation and existential despair while the music arrived with the visceral impact of shattering glass.
