40 Years Later: Closer & The Last Days Of Joy Division (2020)

Joy Division, were one of the first (if not the first) bands that I saw live - on 2nd October 1979, at Mountford Hall in the University of Liverpool students Union. They supported the Buzzcocks on the opening night of their British tour. Joy Division were thrilling to watch, and Ian Curtis was the most mesmerising lead singer I have ever seen. 

HERE is an appreciation of their work at that time, and their second and final album Closer, released forty years ago.
