Joy Division - Decades

Updated on February 8, 2013

here are the young men - in transmission

Joy Division formed during 1976 in Salford, greater Manchester area in the UK by four young men: Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and Stephen Morris. Originally the band was called Warsaw.

Warsaw became also the name of the first planned album of Joy Division. Recorded in May 1978, Warsaw nonetheless circulated as a bootleg until the first commercial release in 1994.

Warsaw, the album, contained some of the remarkable tracks, that would make Joy Division immortal: Leaders of Men, They Walked in Line, Novelty and Transmission.

Love will tear us apart - the original video

Love will tear us apart

When routine bites hard

And ambitions are low

And resentment rides high

But emotions won't grow

And we're changing our ways, taking different roads

Then love, love will tears us apart again

Love, love will tears us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold

You've turned away on your side

Is my timing that flawed?

Our respect run so dry

Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives

But love, love will tears us apart again

Love, love will tear us apart again

You cry out in your sleep

All my failings exposed

And there's a taste in my mouth

As desperation takes hold

Just that something so good just can't function no more

But love, love will tear us apart again

Love, love will tear us apart again

Star Trak - by Anton Corbijn

"I feel protective of my father, that boy who is younger than me.

I have to remember that it's not a documentary, it's just a story -

even if it is a different story to the one I've grown up hearing from

se who were there at the time. However the film is received, those

songs remind me that the most important thing is

and always will be the music."

Natalie Curtis, daughter of Ian Curtis, reflects on Control
