During the late 1970's Manchester, England was a hotbed of musical activity. One of the bands that burst forth from that scene was Joy Division. They were not together very long. Joy Division ended when Ian Curtis, their lead singer, took his own life as the band was preparing to embark on their first tour of the United States. A tour that never happened.
