Ian Curtis died on this day in 1980. Though Ian is gone, his music and memory -- not to mention his impact on music and culture -- will never be forgotten. His influence remains undeniable; his light continues to shine through recordings of his brilliant music and intense energetic live performances. Keep Ian in your thoughts today and enjoy some music and discussion about the legendary Ian Curtis and Joy Division.









Curtis' life was featured on the BBC program Great Lives in 2008. Host Matthew Parris, British poet Simon Armitage and Peter Hook discussed Curtis' life, musical impact, and his final days. During the show, Hook played a short snippet of an unreleased version of Ian Curtis singing "Love Will Tear Us Apart" recorded by Malcolm McLaren. Stream the episode of Great Lives below - more info on the episode is posted here.



Curtis took his own life the day before Joy Division were scheduled to leave England to come to America for their first tour. The full Joy Division North American tour itinerary isn't officially available to view, however this website attempted to piece the tour together using Rob Gretton's notes, club ads, and other scraps of info. FYI, there was a Detroit date scheduled for May 26th at Bookies.



A short documentary from 1987 featuring Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton, and Alan Erasmus talking about Ian Curtis and Joy Division. There's also a few comments made about the commercialization of Curtis' death.



An excellent documentary on Joy Division simply titled Joy Division was released in 2007. The film includes interviews with Curtis' band members as well as key players like Peter Saville, Anton Corbijn, and Tony Wilson, among others. The full documentary has been pulled from You Tube but it is available to view on Netflix.

Unknown Pleasures, the debut album from Joy Division was released June 15th, 1979 and turns 40 years old next month. To mark the milestone, Joy Division announced the release of a limited edition vinyl edition of the seminal album. The 40th anniversary edition will be pressed on 180 gm ruby red vinyl and includes white cover art.

Though the Unknown Pleasures artwork is one of the most iconic and instantly identifiable album covers in music history, the original concept was to feature a white backing with black accents similar to the original pulsar image that served as the inspiration for the artwork. (The intriguing image was published in the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy and was later adapted by Peter Saville for the album artwork.)

The 40th anniversary edition of Unknown Pleasures will be released on June 14th. Visit the official Joy Division store to view pre-order options and bundles.

Joy Division have partnered with London clothing retailer Goodhood. The company created an Unknown Pleasures-inspired "collaborative capsule collection that spans apparel, homeware and accessories." The collection will be available at Goodhood from June 27th through July 11th.

Nitzer Ebb kick off the first leg of their North American tour this week, however due to an unfortunate development beyond their control all four original members will not be present. The band issued a statement this morning informing fans David Gooday and Simon Granger are having visa issues which will prevent them from entering the U.S. It's unclear whether the second leg of North American dates in September will be affected, but it is possible the issues will be sorted out by then.

Read Nitzer Ebb's statement below:

"It is with great sadness that NITZER EBB have to inform you all that due to unforeseen delays with David Gooday and Simon Granger’s visas they will not be joining the first leg of the North American NITZER EBB PRODUKT TOUR that commences in Boston May 9th.

Nobody is more disappointed by this news than NEP, especially David and Simon.

The good news is that Bon and Douglas are excited and ready for great shows despite the change of circumstances and that David and Simon will be joining them for rest of the tour starting in Barcelona May 30th.

We thank you in advance for your understanding"

Robert Smith revealed in a new interview with Sirius that The Cure's 40th anniversary Hyde Park show that took place in London last July will screen in theaters this summer. Director Tim Pope has teased fans with a few comments about the film on Twitter over the past year (with scant details), but now confirms that the film has been mixed in "glorious" surround sound and that it will enjoy a global release in early summer.

Screening dates have not yet been announced, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile Smith also mentioned in the Sirius interview that he's likely not up for playing more 30th anniversary Disintegration shows other than the previously announced series of gigs that take place later this month in Sydney. To make it up to fans outside of Sydney, Smith reminded fans that they'll be able to live stream The Cure's Disintegration show May 30th on You Tube. The band will perform the classic 1989 album in full along with a selection of b-sides and other cuts from their catalog.

The Cure will be returning to the U.S. this October for their headline slots at Austin City Limits. Three day passes for the festival are on sale now.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds return with a new EP titled Black Star Dancing on June 14th. The five song EP features a slickly produced pop-dance title track which Gallagher says is a combination of his influences:

"It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS!... I might have been watching too much Top Of The Pops recently ... anyway, it's ‘dope’ ... not my words, but the words of Nile Rodgers who literally danced in the studio when he heard it!"

Fans that were disappointed in Gallagher's last album Who Built The Moon? likely won't enjoy this further departure from his classic guitar-based Oasis sound, but he deserves credit for not being a one-trick pony.

The Black Star Dancing EP is the first in a series of EPs that Gallagher will be releasing in 2019. The second EP is due in the fall, and the final EP will be released around Christmas.

Earlier this year The Cure announced plans to perform a series of Disintegration 30th anniversary shows at the Sydney Opera House. The shows sold out instantly, however today -- to mark the 30th anniversary of Disintegration -- The Cure announced they'll play an additional Disintegration anniversary show on Thursday, May 30th. Mark your calendar because this fifth and final show of their residency will stream live from Sydney worldwide!

Fans will be able to view the Cure's live stream via You Tube and Facebook bright and early on May 30th at 6AM Eastern Standard Time (the stream takes place at 8PM Australian Eastern Standard Time which is 14 hours ahead).

The Disintegration 30th anniversary show will see The Cure performing the classic 1989 album in full followed by "a selection of rarely performed b-sides plus specially curated deep catalogue cuts" and is expected to last 1 hour and 40 minutes.

For more details on the live stream head here.

Disintegration was released May 2nd, 1989 and remains one of The Cure's most influential and critically acclaimed records. The album includes many of their best known songs like "Fascination Street," "Lovesong," and "Pictures Of You," along with fan favorites "Lullaby," "Prayers For Rain," "Plainsong," and the ultra-epic "The Same Deep Water As You."

Truly a majestic and remarkable record.

Happy 30th!

The Cure will be heading back to the U.S. in October to play Austin City Limits Music Festival. The festival takes place at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas October 4th - 6th and October 11th - 13th (identical lineups for both weekends). Three day general admission passes for ACL are on sale now, however considering the overall unappealing nature of the festival lineup, Cure fans may want to hold off until the daily lineups are revealed and/or single day passes go on sale. Head here for ACL info/tickets.

So far The Cure have not announced other dates surrounding ACL, but considering they'll be in the U.S. with a week off between these festival gigs it's possible they could be considering opportunities for other shows. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, today marks the 35th anniversary of The Cure's classic album The Top. Enjoy some footage of The Cure performing cuts from The Top captured live in 1984.

For his contributions we are honored to name Martin Gore as the recipient of the 2019 Moog Innovation Award."

Gore will receive the award on Friday following his keynote conversation with Daniel Miller.

Moogfest takes place April 25th through April 28th in Durham, North Carolina. The annual festival pays tribute to Bob Moog, inventor of the Moog synthesizer, and celebrates the synthesis of music, art, and technology.

Mark Lanegan Band return with a new album Somebody's Knocking on October 18th.

The follow up to 2017's Gargoyle features 14 songs that sonically range from psychedelic to electronic-based. One song titled "Penthouse High" has been described as "a love letter to imperial phase New Order."

Electronic might seem like a departure for Lanegan, but he reveals he's a huge fan of the genre, especially classic New Order and Depeche Mode:

"I’ve always been into electronic music since I was a kid. I think the reason those elements have become more obvious in my music is that my tastes have changed as I’ve grown older. The bulk of what I listen to now is electronic. Alain Johannes and I had actually written Penthouse High for Gargoyle but then it didn't really fit on that record. I have been a huge fan of New Order and Depeche Mode forever and have wanted to do a song along those lines for a long time - a blatantly catchy, old-school dance-type song."

Today Lanegan debuted the first single "Stitch It Up" along with its highly entertaining music video. The video features Donal Logue reprising his role as Jimmy The Cab Driver - for the unaware, Logue's beloved cabbie character was a staple on MTV in the 90s. The video also includes a cameo from Lanegan's girlfriend Shelley Brien, along with Lanegan himself sporting a few different looks.

Watch "Stitch It Up" below and head here to pre-order Somebody's Knocking on CD and sea blue colored vinyl.

Mark Lanegan Band hit the road next month for the previously announced U.S. tour which brings them to The Shelter on May 8th. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.

Today the shoegaze legends have made good on the promise and unveiled details behind their sixth studio album, This Is Not A Safe Place. Ride once again teamed up with Erol Alkan, producer behind 2017's Weather Diaries, for the 12 track album which is brimming with Ride's signature harmonies. This Is Not A Safe Place came together at the end of 2018 and was mixed by Alan Moulder and Caesar Edmunds at Assault and Battery in London.

Along with the album announcement Ride debuted the first taste of music from the soon-to-be classic album. "Future Love" is a brillant shimmery dream pop track filled with hope, love, and promise. Andy Bell reveals the track is "about the beginning of a relationship, when everything feels possible."
