the nearest to getting an 'og' I.C. autograph is to ask 'ooky' to do one for ye & that would cost at least a tenner or coming up for his bar tab.

That copy keeps getting relisted

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=281038247629

 

here is a bit he's added to I'm assuming confirm its legitimacy.
** Firstly I have contacted several record dealers to extinguish the idea that this record was released after his death. Below the description are several snippets clearly explaining that the record was released before Ian Curtis' death however the song did not chart. The Rolling Stone & NME confirm this also. I would like to point out 'Love Will tear us Apart' was also re-released after his death and it charted at number 13.*

Genuine autographes available here.  I got these sigs at a matinee show at Liverpool Eric's.

I can confirm these are 100% genuine, only selling due to needing some cash for a new boiler before Winter!

Just as a bit of back story; Back in 1978, some friends and I decided to be brave and head to a punk club we'd heard of in Liverpool. I used to be able to recall all the gigs I went to back then, but now I struggle. It may have been Magazine headlining, it may have been Rich Kids. It may even have been someone else. But whoever it was, Joy Division were the support band. In fact, if it wasn't for seeing Black Sabbath a few months earlier, Joy Division would have been the first band I ever saw. Anyway, Joy Division came on, and even with my limited gig experience it was plain to see that they were a really good band with really good songs. It probably wasn't apparent what they would become, but they stood out even then. After this, we went to Eric's pretty much every week and Joy Division were back a month or two later. I can remember Ice Age, Transmission and She's Lost Control from these gigs At some point, I went to London for a week with my parents and scoured the record shops in Portobello Road. I saw Ideal for Living there and snapped a copy up, as they didn't seem to have it in Probe Records in Liverpool. I loved Eric's so much that I actually made my parents come back from London early so I could go again. Joy Division were meant to be supporting John Cooper Clarke that weekend, so we went to see them again. I cornered Ian Curtis in the toilets and got him to sign the record and a piece of paper. It must have been one of the first autographs he had done, he was the first to sign it and he didn't sign near his photo, just in the middle of the sleeve. The other members signed by theirs, maybe I just surprised him! John Cooper Clarke failed to turn up for the gig, so the owner of Eric's gave us half of our money back, so we saw Joy Division for 50p! A month or so later, they played their first headline gig at Eric's to about 30 people. And played a blinder! I saw a lot of n bands at Eric's, and Joy Division stood out amongst the likes of The Clash, The Cure, Wire and even early gigs from the Specials, Human League and the Bunnymen Unfortunately, I need to raise some ,only to pay for a new boiler as mine has packed in, otherwise I wouldn't sell these. Having said that, Ry have been stored in a Nick Cave book for the last ten or so years, so it isn't like I see them particularly. Plus I find that the older I get, the less of a collector I want to be. The Ideal for Living autographed EP was stolen from me a few years after I had it signed, so these are the last Joy Division autographs I have.. Will I miss them? Yes I will, but I can play the songs whenever I want to, and that's what really matters these days

What a wonderful story - thanks for sharing it with us. And my sympathies regarding that dratted boiler - I had to sell a large part of my record collection last year in order to pay for something important; needs must in lean times, I suppose...

Thanks. I'm sure I'll be glad of it when I'm warm and toasty in my house this winter, but it will be a sad day when they go.

One of the lads I used to go to Eric's with has some photos of joy Division from there that have Never been published anywhere. I will have to get them off him and upload em on here. I can remember one of Ian almost swallowing the mic

Shocking tales of fakery here.

I can assure all that the autographs I'm selling are genuine, the age of the paper is one clue, as is my defacing them by writing a description on the paper myself (a habit that also desecrated autographs by the Slits, , Ruts, Big in Japan, etc) and the fact that the autographs are plit across two pieces of paper. Ironically all the things that would seem to detract from their idealness.

My research has led me to see two other autographed copies of An Ideal for Living in existence. Does anyone here know of more?

I really dont get the point of paying for (alleged) autographs ....

For me the whole point of it was actually being there at the time and making it personal ie. the challenge / fun and games of trying to get into the soundcheck or maybe backstage after the gig .... and if you did, then briefly meeting the band and asking a few questions etc and getting a few things signed ...

Yep, fair enough. There was a time when I would have paid for autographs, but as I've mentioned before e older I get the less of a collector I become. I used to collect all formats of singles and albums, but as long as I can listen to them now I'm happy with that. Maybe if i was a millionaire with a few spare rooms I'd still collect but, sadly, I'm not. But autographs will always be collectible I think

Yup, there's too many forgeries around. Not worth the risk, unless it's offered by Ian's former wife.
