"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?"
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 !!!!!
Stuff shrinks in the wash though doesn't it.
I want some Joy Division Oven Gloves.
How about this?
i live a stone's throw from where he lived and died.
Ive got that beat, I am Ian Curtis (honest) was quite a disturbing day when it was announced I had died in NME and I walked into school
One of my all time favourite bands - you either get them or you don't
RIP Ian Curtis, nice link that one Craigwend.
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
