i  know ian spoke to genesis the night before  his suicide,i believe for quite a while ,a few hours even, why doesn`t the film have genesis share some of that? i was surprised by this omission, maybe its was butchered in the edit,possibly to reappear in the uk dvd version,or gen didnt feel it appropriate to talk about , but its still seems odd to me,btw always so much weirdness around genesis i`m not suprised something incredible like  ian curtis talking  to him on the eve of his death

I've heard it said that Genesis has in the past told many different versions of this alleged phone conversation.

Maybe this is the reason that it hasn't been over stated in the documentary.

in "torn apart" genesis says he tried to get through to ian on the night he died but no one knew where he was.

then on his site he says he was talking to ian the night he died.

he continually contradicts himself

He tends to build on this story

There's one book where he claims that "Ian PROMISED me he would die before he got to the USA" and also that GPO phoned various mamners of Factory to warn them that Ian was about to kill himself.....

If that was the case, why was the official responce from Factory this sentence - "It came as one hell of a bloody shock"

I tend to file GPO's account of that night alongside Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.....

Yeah, I've found the various versions of this story dubious too. I expect there's at least a grain of truth in it though. It would be pretty fucked up to pull such a story out of thin air.

it doesnt sound true to me... deborah curtis does not mention this tel call in her wonderful book on Ian "Touching from a distance"...
nevertheless teh IC Water track that psychic tv dedicated to Ian is a great track
Psychic Tv used to be a great band in the 80's...today Genesis is a poor man with tits...rather pathetic running around and playing awful rock music worse then the worst Ramones

When I first interviewed Debbie three years ago - I asked her about this conversation Ian supposedly had with Genesis - she said she had no knowledge of it.

Never met her in person - this was a telephone interview - I later interviewed her again by email for this site
