Last week, Ian Curtis would’ve turned 64.
Our honouring of his life and oeuvre was therefore focused on Anton Corbijn’s haunting portrayal of the artist and his band in 2007. As a 23-year-old singer of Joy Division, formerly ‘Warsaw,’ Ian Curtis committed suicide as a result of personal, professional, and romantic troubles., set in the North of England in the mid-70s, is also a grim yet beautiful hindsight of the northern working class, and a touching insight on the young artist, that now, long after his passing, is the icon of a cult following, and an immense influence on a myriad of bands to this day.
Regarded as a polarising voice of Manchester’s post-punk scene, as well as a true poet, it’s hard to contest that his touch is still found many years later, in bands the likes of The Drums, Bauhaus, Interpol, The National and undoubtedly more recently, Irish band Fontaines D.C.
