Ian Curtis 35

Walk in silence…

People like you find it easy…

Hunting by the rivers
Through the streets
Every corner
Abandoned too soon
Set down with due care.

35 years ago, Ian Curtis the lead Joy Division singer took his life. Such a shame.

Notice the New Order Facebook posted Love Will Tear Us Apart, but Atmosphere has a resonance, being the record that John Peel played after announcing his death on-air, the video. I was too young to hear him play (although they were recording a few miles from where I grew up) but I have heard the remaining members of Joy Division play this and everyone sing along, fists aloft, you could feel Ian in the room.
