Hello to all my friends at Joy Division Central. I will be visiting Manchester via Toronto for an Ian Curtis and Joy Division pilgrimage. Barton Street and Ian's resting spot are definite stops. Can anyone recommend a more extensive route, and / or any additional info ? Cheers, mates !

RDCO in Cheshire manufacture custom flight case foam inserts

They are in Nether Alderley, about 30 minutes by bus from Macclesfield

Mr Ho's bakery is worth a visit. It's near where they recorded the first version of Transmission at St.James Street Central Studios. The band, particularly Ian liked Mr Ho's pastries and it became a regular haunt.

Most of the JD landmarks have gone now, I think even the barbers poles near the cathedral too. The bridge in Hulme is still there but the flats have gone. Maybe it's too late...

" RDCO in Cheshire manufacture custom flight case foam inserts "  

Why are you raising the issue of custom flight case foam inserts, when I am genuinely asking helpful members or administration of Joy Division Central for help or advice in a pilgrimage of Joy Division and especially Ian Curtis, Rest in peace.    

So someone can throw foam at someone else, to pick on them, or try to bully someone ?

Hasn't that already been done, once or twice ?

Would Ian Curtis think you are clever, and funny ?

Would he congratulate you for bringing up something that hurt HIM personally when he had foam rubber from the flight cases thrown at HIM, and was picked on for HIS phobias by the band ?

Hasn't Ian felt enough pain while he was Still alive, that you must bring up more torment ? 

Must you exploit Ian's painful experiences to hurt someone who you have personally decided to hate ?

Just as a matter of interest and curiosity - I can't ever remember reading the story of when Ian Curtis had foam rubber from flight cases thrown at him.  Can you enlighten me as to where this story originated? And what phobias did the band pick on him for? I know they were all fond of jolly japes - Ian was too.

Hi Lee....  http://lwtua.websitetoolbox.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1295668657&postcount=44&forum=21830  

( post #44 on Joy Division Central's collector items,  Joy Division original road case Original authentic.  Deb Curtis recalls the incidents when Ian was picked on by the band despite his phobia of foam. It must have really hurt Ian for him to tell his wife about it. )  

Jolly japes ?  Surrendered to self preservation,
From others who care for themselves.
A blindness that touches perfection,
it hurts just like anything else.
               Ian killed himself. So who were Ian's real friends,

and did they pick on him ?

When I investigated the link it only appears to show that you have asked permission for the paragraph - I presume the link to the paragraph was the "preview" at the bottom - when I click on it "Bad Request" appears.

Yes Ian was fond of japes - he helped participate in some of the pranks played on Buzzcocks during the tour. It's not the first time you've cited "Isolation" as a window into Ian's personality - but generally human beings can be multi-faceted. Ian was once quoted as being "all things to all men" - one lyric does not make a personality. We all have our ups and downs and those who are really down can master the ability to disguise it from friends. It was remarked that he was laughing and joking the last time the band saw him alive - the Thursday before his death when they were all on a night out with Paul Dawson (The Amazing Noswad).

This topic was originally about my hopes to have any member of Joy Division Central who could be friendly to please help me on my Ian Curtis memorial tour. This topic seems to have been hijacked again by Pat Teasdale who seems to wish I would cease to exist.
