A Paris match - Away days with The Jam

The day started normally enough, with a small posse of scooters and a few cars parked outside my house in Forest Gate. Ready for a jolly boys outing to Paris to see The Jam. As we bowled up the road, we talked of pills, the French skinheads and our previous trip to France.

Ian Curtis – Remembered Thirty Two Years On

/ian curtis matteo sedazzari zani 1

In two albums and five singles Ian Curtis managed to bring us all into his world. I was about twenty when he died I loved Joy Division as did Bobby Gillespie. But could have Ian Curtis have lived with the massive success that was coming his way, if he hadn’t had committed suicide, who knows ?  But Dead Souls, Isolation and Decades best describe the world that Ian inhabited.
 
In addition, he also summed up the seminal Factory Records in many ways, somehow Creation Records managed to do this without anybody dying. Factory Records had a death in their history and Ian Curtis was their biggest star really and still is. Off the top of my head, I think there have been now four films about Ian Curtis and Factory Records that says it all.
