The fascination with both Joy division and the legendary figure of vocalist Ian Curtis seems to show no sign of wavering. If anything, their modest but highly influential records and Curtis's almost hypnotic style has become increasingly revered as time goes on.
This book does a very fine job of charting the development of Joy Division's music whilst focusing on their singer's troubled persona.
Detailed, exhaustive and utterly compelling stuff.
