  2. "1805 1980"? Well, at least he had a good innings.

    I was only a youngster when Ian Curtis killed himself but Joy Division was a band I really liked at that time. Couldn't understand why anyone would want to do that - I remember listening to John Peel and he said the same.

    My dad, thumbing through little brother's record collection, asks 'who's Joy Davidson?" :biggrin:

    I never got into their albums because the producer really messed up their music, but those old clips on YouTube show what a fantastic band they were live and what a great performer Ian Curtis was.

    It's not too surprising to hear he killed himself after listening to some of those lyrics.

    I can't concentrate
    I'm in a state
    I don't feel straight
    I can't love or hate
    I can't feel nothing
    Can't see nothing
    Only just learning
    I ain't no king
    If you're in a rut
    You've got get out of it
    Out of it !!!!!

    There was an even cooler one without the writing, just the black and white mountains or whatever they are.

    I saw him live a few months before he died. Fantastic music I think. Unlike anybody else I can think of really - and to be unique in pop music is virtually impossible.

    Loads of tracks to choose as my fav. but I'll link to this
