The band that inspired thousands of musicians, painters, photographers and filmmakers. The subject of Joy Division never gets old for me. From the time I was fourteen and now, I’m still blown away by the power & relevance of their sound along with their personal history which is equally mind blowing. In October 2010 a new book will be released by Rizzoli of band photographs by Kevin Cummins (“the definitive chronicler of Manchester music”). Along with two hundred photos there are images of concert tickets, unreleased record sleeves, fan club badges and records flyers.
With a preface by Bernard Sumner, forward by Jay McInerney and an essay by Sue Webster $45 www.rizzoliusa.com
