JD revival

Mojo cover Joy Division seems to be really hot at the moment, even though the new film about the life of Ian Curtis, directed by Anton Corbijn, is not expected before next year. There is now a large Joy Division/New Order special in British magazine Mojo (which also contains a postpunk compilation cd). Dutch music magazine OOR also has an extensive Joy Division/New Order dossier at the moment, including interviews with Ian’s widow Deborah Curtis, bassist Peter Hook and Anton Corbijn. Furthermore Joy Division is featured on the cover of Q magazine, which also has an online competition to win the entire New Order back catalogue.
