The back in time series, from 1977 to 1990
5 June 2023
1980 was the year (18 May) that IAN CURTIS, the both charismatic and troubled frontman/lyricist of Manchester’s eternal post-punk heroes Joy Division committed suicide following mental health problems and psychically suffering from epilepsy.
He was only 23. Curtis and the band are still a huge influence to this day for countless artists/band. He lives on in many hearts of thousands of fans. Rest in peace.
And here are the 20 classic crackers from 1980
picked by Turn Up The Volume‘s ears.
