I knew the song referred to epilepsy but I never knew it was so specifically about someone else with it. This is the song that first got me into Joy Division. Thanks for sharing
Epping Walk Bridge 2010.
#NoFilter - not demolished. Not shot from the wrong side. Original photo (and this) taken looking west. Bridge has since been refurbished. Lampposts changed sides and handrail fitted. #TimsTwitterListeningParty #UnknownPleasures @peterhookhttps://picsoci.com/tweet/CGWxDCHMK7
Tomorrow it’s 12 years I did a presentation in English class in school about Joy Division. We were asked to talk about a topic we’re passionate about, my choice was easy. My handout for my classmates is below, saved it all these years.
I think I did quite well seeing as it was freezing cold, I was running out of film, they were constantly dicking around as well as moaning about the cold etc
#TimsTwitterListeningParty @peterhook #UnknownPleasures I thought these were stronger than the bridge pic at the time https://picsoci.com/tweet/QPLHM57G7g
Ian Curtis's autograph from 30 October 1979. Me and a schoolmate showed him & Barney around Oxford to help them get a guitar strap fixed ahead of their gig supporting Buzzcocks that night

Then we went to Hulme. The idea was to have them looking south over the bridge - aspirational - looking to London for fame & fortune etc. But when I got them in position & was walking down to roadside it just looked perfect
