Hi folks - my first post [smile]

I've started going through my collection of old fanzines and music papers and sent a few Joy Division related scans to Marko a while back. He suggested I post them on the forum, so to start with here's a good review of Joy Division's performance at the Moonlight Club on 4th April 1980 plus some blurry photos from a zine called "It's Different For Grils".

As you probably know the above performance inspired the NME reviewer to say that Joy Division convinced him he could spit in the face of God. The NME did a 2 page feature on the whole "Factory By Moonlight" event at the Moonlight Club, with reviews of the performances on all three nights and some iconic colour photos of Ian Curtis taken by Peter Anderson.

I put a JPG of the Peter Anderson photos here:

I've also scanned the whole thing, so I can upload it if anyone's interested.

Great first post StillUnusual ....welcome to the site [thumb]

This could be the start of a really good thread .... fingers crossed

I for one would love to see some of the original 'City Fun' magazines ...as ive never managed to pick any up (any decent JD gig reviews, live pics, interviews etc?). Maybe someone on here has a few of them ? Cheers - Pat

I've got a couple of issues of City Fun - one of them has brief mentions of Joy Division playing at the Nashville and also at the penultimate night of the Factory club, but that's about it.

I'd also love to see more issues of that zine - it came out fairly regularly for several years, so I'm sure somebody out there must have some....

These scans are from issue 3 of a fanzine called The Story So Far, which included an interview with Joy Division that was done at London’s Rainbow Theatre in November 1979, at the end of their UK tour supporting The Buzzcocks - and a great pic of Ian Curtis....

Thanks for posting. Great bit of writing and very interesting. Quite sad that IC said if they got a keyboard player in it would have to be someone who couldn't play, and of course they did but in the worst possible circumstances.

Also not sure if I misunderstood the quote but was Rob Gretton rubbishing Atmosphere?

The way I read it, it was Steve that was rubbishing it ...not Rob [wink]

I had seen the interview before - in one of the 'History in Cuttings' mags ? - but not the pic .... thanks for sharing

Hey stillunusual ... thanks for the post, I wanted to pass along a non-Flickr link - why is the interview page on your Tumblr page coming up as "Image not available"?

(I also always thought "The Story So Far..." was just a Modettes album title!)

Thanks for pointing that out - no idea why that image wasn't displayed - seems to be OK now....

These scans are from a fanzine called Death Or Glory....

[deathorglory] 


The authors went to see Joy Division’s penultimate gig at the Ajanta in Derby on 19th April 1980....

And I wonder what was on the tape advertised at the bottom of this page - does anybody out there have a copy?

The first issue of Tidal Wave fanzine was dedicated to Ian Curtis and was published by somebody called Terri shortly after his death:



Like the author of It’s Different For Grils fanzine, she went to see the “Factory by Moonlight” event at London’s Moonlight Club in April 1980, but attended the second night which featured Kevin Howick, Blurt, Joy Division and A Certain Ratio - in that order.

Terri was still in the process of writing Tidal Wave when she heard on the radio (presumably the John Peel show) that Curtis had died, and in addition to her review of the gig there’s also a tribute to him on the back cover of the fanzine.

I have another issue of the fanzine which also features Joy Division, so I'll post that some other time....

This scan is from issue 2 of Peroxide fanzine:



This issue included news about the remaining members of The Ruts and Joy Division deciding to carry on, despite the recent deaths of Malcolm Owen and Ian Curtis, and a half page piece about Curtis' death....

I also found a brief mention of Ian Curtis in the second issue of Rising Free fanzine:



The authors pay tribute to him even though they didn't particularly like Joy Division's music....

Brilliant stuff, chum. I'd never seen that Derby review before, and I got a lot of JD clippings. Cheers for sharing, what JD Central is all about. I like your flickr shots of Manchester too.

These are the last scans from me for the time being - all the previous ones were from fanzines that came out in 1980. The scans below are from issue 2 of an obscure poetry zine from the early 1990s called "Voiceless Icons", which happens to have Ian Curtis on the front and back cover.

BACK


I've got another box of fanzines in my garage that I haven't looked through yet and I'm sure there are more that include Joy Division content, so I'll definitely post a few more scans in future (not sure when though). Glad I've been able to share a few things that people haven't seen before....

Hello again - I recently scanned and uploaded a fanzine from 1982 called Index, which is entirely devoted to telling the story of Joy Division (and the early days of New Order)....
