    Today's the 32nd anniversary of his untimely death. Apparently he was a blue and definitely was an amazing front man and song writer. Joy Division, A Certain Ratio and New Order soundtracked an important part of my life adding some more significance to his life and death for me.

    Love, love will tear us apart, again...RIP Ian

    I used to work in Macc and always used to drive past his old house on Barton St. To be a fly on the wall in that house, sends chills down the spine.

    Sadly missed, my own love of Manchester sparked by Atmosphere on Peel. Wish they'd played Transmission on Sunday, always starts the 2nd half well.

    Shame the JD legacy tarnished by a series of films that miss the magic

    Interesting mate, I liked Control but my dad (who was a year younger than Curtis, saw them numerous times and flew home early from a holiday on the news of his death) hated it.
