Description

Joy Division's vocalist Ian Curtis tragically took his own life in 1980, leaving behind just two haunting albums and a depleted band that would famously evolve into New Order.

Over twenty-five years later, the cult surrounding Curtis shows no signs of fading. Fans make regular pilgrimages to his hometown of Macclesfield and to Manchester, where the legacy of Joy Division and Factory Records has passed into legend.

The authors of this new biography are uniquely qualified to reveal the extraordinary events surrounding Ian Curtis. Mick Middles was the first journalist to interview Joy Division for the music press and formed a close association with the band. Lindsey Reade was a co-founder of Factory Records along with her then-husband Tony Wilson. Together they have revisited the legend of Ian Curtis and produced the first full-length account of this troubled man's life, work and relationships in the midst of the unique explosion of pop energy that hit Manchester in the late seventies.
