IAN CURTIS DEATH HOUSE UP FOR SALE

The house in which Joy Division frontman IAN CURTIS committed suicide is up for sale.

The two bedroom terrace at 77 Barton Street in Macclesfield near Manchester is described by property website Rightmove as “ideal for first-time buyers.”

Curtis hanged himself in the kitchen of the house on May 18 1980, days before the band were due to undertake a US tour. He was two months shy of his 24th birthday.

However, a spokesperson for Bridgfords, the estate agency handling the sale, says that despite the house’s history, so far there has been no macabre interest from Joy Division fans.

“There has been a lot of interest in the property,” she told NME.COM, “but no people who are massive fans of Joy Division have expressed any interest in it.”

The house is on the market at £64,950.
