punk-ish drum loops library?

I've been having a blast w/ the martin atkins beat fetish from cakewalk - does anyone know of any other libraries with this vibe/feel? it's great for doing demo's and futzing around getting my old school joy division on...

I've got superior drummer 2.0 - and there's just no way (for me at least) to get this feel from programmed drums.

any tips to like products would be appreciated.

That was my generation. I played with Julian Cope, The Waterboys and World Party.
Many of the drum sounds of that era were quite dry, perhaps with reverb added rather than a bombastic room.
I don't usually directly recommend my own product but (as you are an S2 owner) it seems appropriate:

The drums are drier and darker than most sample libraries.
I did the midi.

I almost bought that one - I got the Nashville kit instead cause it has the "fingers" samples which are nice for variation.

I'll check it out for sure - I'm really hoping to find recorded loops - but I'm open to anything that works. I'm really wanting a raw joy division kinda sound.

what quality you looking for? betamonkey has some great grooves
with mediocre sounds. Good for writing not good enough for production

Did you check out Street Punk Essentials by Ugritone? Not sure if this library sounds "Joy Division" enough, but it is not all that expensive and might be worth giving a shot. Ugritone is an interesting company overall. I have their 1989 Reverb and so far I have not found anything better for "period-correct" gated reverbs, among other things.
