“On the eve of Joy Division’s first U.S. tour – May 1980 – Ian Curtis dies. Tragedy. Shock. The band’s first NYC appearance was scheduled for Hurrah – a club I was very familiar with having spent the the previous year photographing many groups. A year passes and finally in the Spring* of 1981 the band plays NYC. A new name but the spirit of Curtis lingers. The hall is packed. The mood somber. This photo brings him back.” – Eugene Merinov.

*The concert was actually in November, not during the Spring.  Here is the show in its’ entirety.
