joy division’s ian curtis remembered.

Tuesday, May 18th marks the 30th anniversary of the tragic death of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis. After meeting childhood friends Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook at a Sex Pistols concert, they formed Joy Division and pioneered Britain’s post-punk scene. Curtis became its brightest star before taking his own life at 23. With only 4 years together and 2 studio albums, it’s amazing how influential and relevant their sound remains.

Check out their television debut in September 1978:
