No Joy

Joy Division

I have just been listening to Radio 4's 'The Film Programme', who have just covered the new film 'Control', about Joy Division's frontman, Ian Curtis, when by pure coincidence my news reader brought this from Digital Spy courtesy of the Devil.

For the benefit of a friend of mine who ends up in a fit of rage every time he visits the Devil's Kitchen:
The US distributors of Control have requested the late Ian Curtis performs at the premiere.


"[Ex-bandmate Peter Hook] replied, 'Well, the last I heard, the lead singer was dead but I’ll give them a ring and see if anything has changed'."

Oddly enough the subject didn't crop up on R4's more pretentiousworthy coverage of the film.
