Unknown pleasures by Joy Division (Musical group)( Recording )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Unknown Pleasures, founding member and bass player Peter Hook recounts how four young men from Manchester and Salisbury, with makeshift instruments and a broken-down van, rose from the punk scene to create a haunting, atmospheric music that would define a generation. Peter talks with eye-opening candor and reflection about the suicide of Ian Curtis; the band's friendships and fallouts; the evolution of their sound and image; and the larger-than-life characters who formed a vital part of the Joy Division legend, including Factory Records founder Tony Wilson and producer Martin Hannett

En cuerpo y alma : cancionero de Joy Division by Daniel Gascón( )

3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muchas canciones contienen esporádicos chispazos de alto voltaje lírico, pero muy pocas consiguen sostener sus letras como creaciones autónomas: la palabra suele decaer (o pudrirse) sin el soporte de las notas. Hay, sin embargo, excepciones. Una de ellas es, por supuesto, Bob Dylan. Otra es Ian Curtis, fundador de Joy Division. Si los dioses le concedieron pocos días sobre la tierra, éstos fueron al menos generosos. Lo suficiente para dejarnos una obra espléndida y difícilmente clasificable

Touching from a distance : Ian Curtis and Joy Division by Deborah Curtis( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the only in-depth biographical account of the legendary lead singer of Joy Division, written by his widow. It includes a foreword by Jon Savage and an introduction by Joy Division drummer, Steven Morris. Revered by his peers and idolized by his fans, Ian Curtis left behind a legacy rich in artistic genius. Mesmerizing on stage but introverted and prone to desperate mood swings in his private life, Curtis died by his own hand on 18 May 1980. Touching from a Distance documents how, with a wife, child and impending international fame, Curtis was seduced by the glory of an early grave. Regarded as the essential book on the essential icon of the post-punk era, Touching from a Distance includes a full set of Curtis' lyrics and a discography and gig list

Looking for China girl by Sophie Todd( Visual )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Around the world approximately 105 men are born for every 100 women, however in China it is a different story - up to 118 men are born for every 100 women. The Chinese government knows the seriousness of this issue, but family planning is a sensitive subject amongst the world's biggest population. Following three stories - an independent woman, a male migrant worker desperate for a wife, and a local police unit fighting to stem the recent spate of wife kidnapping; this program investigates a problem that could spell major trouble for China's future and looks at what could happen to a society when there is an imbalance in gender population."--Cover

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ian Curtis has aspirations beyond the trappings of small town life in 1970s England. Wanting to emulate his musical heroes, he joins a band, and his musical ambition begins to thrive. Soon though, the everyday fears and emotions, fueled by his music, slowly begin to eat away at him. Married young, with a daughter, he is distracted from his family commitments by a new love and the growing expectations of his band, Joy Division. The strain manifests itself in his health. With epilepsy adding to his guilt and desperation, depression takes hold. Surrendering to the weight on his shoulder, Ian's tortured soul consumes him and leads him to commit suicide at the age of 23

Conspiracies on trial = Conspiraciones( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A lo largo de la historia, las conspiraciones son temas que generan polémica. ¿Sera posible que Jesucristo haya tenido un hijo con María Magdalena?, ¿Existen significados ocultos en las pinturas de Leonardo Da Vinci?, ¿Es posible que los descendientes de Jesucristo caminen junto a nosotros?. Estas preguntas serán respondidas cuando un grupo de expertos investiguen a través de pruebas científicas las teorías que el autor Dan Brown plantea en su novela "El Código Da Vinci" que ha provocado una de las más grandes controversias de la historia. También pondremos en juicio la misteriosa muerte de Rudolf Hess, diputado nazi y fiel sirviente de Hitler. ¿Por qué fué encarcelado por más de 40 años? ¿Verdaderamente se ahorcó en su celda?. Oficialmente su muerte pasó a la historia como un suicidio a los 93 años de edad. ¿Existió un doble de Hess para cubrir secretos entre Nazis y Btitánicos?, ¿Qué relación tiene el Gobierno Británico con su muerte?. Es tiempo de revelar los hechos que existen detrás de la ficción en este par de extraordinarias conspiraciones."--Envase
