Joy Division PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Joy Division free pdf "Joy Division: Piece by Piece" is the definitive collection of writings on the legendary cult band. In addition to collecting Morley's own classic works about the band from the late '70s/early '80s, this unique book includes his eloquent Ian Curtis obituary and his hindsight pieces on the significance of the group, framed by an extensive retrospective essay. Contemporary elements include Morley s critique of the films "24 Hour Party People" which told the story of the band s record label, Factory and "Control," for which the author visited the set during production. Most movingly, Morley includes the original text that grew into his literary work Nothing, which parallels the suicide of Curtis with that of his own father. He also evokes the zeitgeist and the 'psycho-geography' of Manchester, which combined to produce the most uniquely intense rock group ever."

About Paul Morley

Paul Morley wrote for the "NME" from 1977 to 1983 when the magazine was at its most successful and notorious. He wrote for the first few issues of "The Face," was a regular contributor to "Blitz," and was one of the first presenters of "The Late Show." He currently writes for "Arena," "Esquire," "The Sunday Telegraph" and contributes to numerous TV and radio programs. His previous books include "Nothing," which was published to great1000acclaim in 2000 and "Words and Music: A History of Pop in the Shape of a City," described by the "Guardian"'s reviewer as 'the best book about pop I had ever read'. Morley is the man who knew Joy Division best he was the only journalist permitted to view Curtis' corpse, was present when Curtis suffered his life-changing epileptic seizure following a London concert in April 1980, and wrote extensively and evocatively of the 'mood, atmosphere and ephemeral terror' that enveloped this unique group and their doomed front man. These are his complete writings on Joy Division, both contemporary and retrospective. As he says, 'the more that time moves on, the more I have to say about them'."
