The definitive story

Even though this story has been told many times, this podcast brings more detail, interviews, and archive than ever before. Maxine Peak is a great choice of narrator too.

Listening to this podcast, more than ever, I can’t help thinking like many long term fans, that it would be great to see the four members of Joy Division reconcile before its too late. Not for us, but for them.

Love will tear you apart...

When Ian Curtis died I was 19 and I remember being upset. 40 years on I was listening to episode 4 while out for a run and found myself in tears.
Great to hear the voices of Tony Wilson, Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner et al. Maxine Peake’s narration is great, absolutely the right tone.
It’s a credit to all those involved. I hope this wins many awards.

Never tire of hearing

So far, this is a great podcast with facts, heart and atmospheric sounds. Just makes me so sad that they’ve been acrimoniously estranged for so long. Come on lads, time to make up!
