It is 35 years since the death of Ian Curtis, frontman of the seminal Salford post-punk band Joy Division. The band garnered international critical acclaim with the release of their debut album Unknown Pleasures in 1979, but the group was dissolved following Curtis’s suicide at the age of just 23 in 1980.
