Ian Curtis died 25 years ago yesterday, May 18 (in the photo with his daugther Natalie)
A singer with the British band Joy Division he was in my opinion one of the most important artists of the 80's.
A great poet with lyrics mainly delivering precise and chilling descriptions of the modern individual dealing with experiences of alienation, isolation, dysfunctionality and the search for a new hope.
The movie "24 hour party people" about the Factory record company (and many other things!), features the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division.
A movie about Ian Curtis directed by Anton Corbijn is in preparation.
