Ian Curtis Vintage Rock Design
Black Joy Division Shirt
Formed in Salford in 1976, Joy Division consisted of vocalist Ian Curtis, guitarist/keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen Morris. The band was formed after Sumner and Hook attended a Sex Pistols concert and, while the band’s first recordings were influenced by punk, they soon developed their own sound which made them one of the pioneers of the post-punk movement.
Ian Curtis, featured on this shirt, suffered from personal problems including a failing marriage, depression, and epilepsy. As the band’s popularity grew, the weight fell on Curtis’s shoulders and his condition made it increasingly difficult for him to perform. Occasionally, Curtis would have seizures on stage. In May 1980 he killed himself on the eve of the band’s first US/Canada tour; he was 23.
