Song for sunday Ian curtis 32 years

Well friday this week saw 32 years since the to soon passing of Joy Divisions lead singer Ian Curtis .The band have been with me since my early teens ,I lived near where the band was from so I  knew places where  he lived and the site of his grave   as I went to college in Macclesfield his hometown .Around the same time ,I remember hearing love will tear us apart in 1990 the 10th anniversary whilst I was working in a local pub ,boy as I heard it was 32 years on friday on 6 music I realised how quick those twenty-two years have gone as in my head so in a moment I had a proustian moment of being transported  back to a busy pub ,behind the bar serving people as this love will tear us apart came on the jukebox (what happen to jukeboxs you never see them these days )and finding myself caught in the moment and singing the lyrics .

Do you like Joy division?

    Loved them, Stu and went on to really enjoy New Order too. It makes me feel really old to realise he died so many years ago…

    Joy Division ought to be nearer to my era but I’m mostly aware of them through the Wombats ‘Let’s dance to Joy Division’ – oops.

    They used to be one of my favourite bands. Still haven’t watched the movie Control. Have you seen it?
