Thirty-Two Years Later, We Still Miss Ian Curtis

REPORTERS Belgium - Joy Division live at Plan K

Today marks the thirty-second anniversary of Ian Curtis’ death. We thought about putting together a Music History feature, but we have run a few recently and felt the legacy of Curtis should not be given such cookie cutter treatment. Then I spent a few hours crafting a lengthy editorial about growing up in the midwest and the memories I hold close of late nights in basements singing along to emo covers of Joy Divison tracks, but again, it seems too “expected” for someone that means so much to our staff and readers. So instead of trying to get it all out, we’re going to keep it to ourselves and let the music do the talking. Join us in celebrating the musical legacy of Ian Curtis by clicking past the jump and watching the official music video for “Love Will Tear Us Apart.”

Rest in peace.
