Ian Curtis 34 years on

Well in a change from the usual book related post .I’m doing a short post about a favourite singer of mine I can’t remember when I first heard Joy division but it feels like there music has been around since my first lone forays into music , of course the fact he lived and die in Macclesfield a small town very near to where I spent my teen years .Ian Curtis died 34 years ago tomorrow he killed himself but was struggling with many think bi polar , epilepsy and fame ,for me it is his lyrics that have alwAys touch me bleak love songs , songs about collapsed cities and a changing world at the time . So I’ll post videos to a couple of my favourite song love will tear us apart there most famous but some many times over the years it has cropped up a strange times for me .

    Such a sad loss…I loved Joy Division. As a teenager, I think I drove my mum bonkers with ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’, but their music spoke to me. ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ is one of my favourites, too, along with ‘She’s Lost Control’.
