Joy Division Special – Monday 8:45pm CST
Everyone knows “Love Will Tear Us Apart” – but there was more to Joy Division than just their biggest hit.
On 11th January 1980, Joy Division played the famed Paradiso club in Amsterdam.
It was 6 months out from the release of their next LP, ‘Closer’ – but within 4 months, of the Amsterdam gig, Joy Division’s singer, Ian Curtis would tragically end his own life.
On Thursday 11th January – the 38th anniversary of the gig, thegist.net.au takes you back to The Paradiso to sample a 45-minute set from Joy Division’s performance there.
The band takes the stage around 8:45pm Central Standard Time.
