Sofia Coppola. She used Ceremony in Marie Antoinette and if you watch the DVD special features, you'll hear some proper Joy Division playing on the set.

Also, from my hometown, Montreal:

and a new UK band with a singer from Montreal (who has the Unknown Pleasures lines tattooed on one of her arms): http://www.youtube.com/phantomlovers

Who'd have thought Kate Nash had such great taste?

It's well worth taking a listen to Scary Monsters, in some parts you could, in a good light, hear JD's influence, though perhaps more Hannets technique rather than from a particular JD song (maybe some drums), Dave "I absorb, I'm like a sponge'' or, as Jagger put it, "never wear a new pair of shoes in front of Dave".

Was Ian aware, doubt it, Scary Monsters was released in the September of 1980 - the hype machine for this album wouldn't have started rolling, well, as early as May.

But fairs fair, Ian did drink often from the thin white fountain (and it's tributary, The Osterburg) I spoke at length with Ian about Bowie, both of us were big fans..

You spoke to Ian?. Is it rude of me to ask what relation you had with Ian(if you mean Curtis of course) and did you have any more anecdotal conversations?.

Bits of Iggy's The Idiot (produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti, just like Scary Monsters) do sound like something that Hannett would produce, except it came out in 1977. Maybe Bowie just thought: "Fucking hell, let's show them how it's done once again".

I am not surprised that Bono is a fan, given that one of their songs borrows a tune from J.D..

Andy McCluskey of OMD was a big fan and indicated that "Statues" is inspired by JD.

Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand and the guys from interpol (who copied JD) and from Mexico, there's a band called Owen who usually dedicate entire gigs to Ian Curtis

Half Man Half Biscuit have done several JD covers and often tease the crowd with snippets of tracks in between numbers.

I believe HMHB have covered Transmission, New Dawn Fades, Disorder and 24 Hours, although I've only heard the first two. Both versions are quite excellent in my opinion.

I remember hearing former Chelsea player Pat Nevin, when providing commentary on 5Live Football, confirm his fondness for JD ..... and also New Order .... as he said that he only agreed to re-sign his Chelsea contract in summer '84 if the Chelsea manager at the time agreed to sub him early in a forthcoming game he was due to play in ..... the reason being to allow him time to be able to get along to Royal Festival Hall gig in May '84!

But the Festival Hall gig was a Monday...! He'd have had 2 days to get back from Grimsby where the previous match was (last of the season, incidentally!!)...they did win the league that year (Division 2) and Pat Nevin was their player of the year so maybe there was a bit of celebrating?

Amazing what info you can find on this interweb thingy!!

I think Harry Hill is a fan. He had Joyce Division on his show last Saturday night. Then later on I heard Warsaw on Match of the Day...

Even a big picture of the band on the wall of Harry Hill's studio to start the Joyce Division sequence. I think this programme is aimed at relatively young people, so not sure how many would know the band - hopefully more now than before, well done Harry.

Dunno how famous Danny Brown is (never heard of him) but maybe one of less likely people to publicly declare his love for Joy Division:

'I think my favorite, the most amazing shit, would be Joy Division. But I think Korn was one of the first bands I got freaked out about. They had some hip-hop in their sound too, and from them I got into System of a Down and Incubus. But Joy Division is the number one influence for me right now. I could talk for hours about that.'
