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

9 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joy Division formed in Manchester, England in 1977, and had an immense and profound impact on contemporary music in a very brief time together. They recorded only two full-length studio albums, UNKNOWN PLEASURES and CLOSER, prior to lead singer Ian Curtis' 1980 suicide, just before the single "Love Will Tear Us Apart" became their breakthrough hit. The remaining members - guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris - disbanded Joy Division after Curtis' death, and re-formed as New Order
En cuerpo y alma : cancionero de Joy Division by Ian Curtis( )

3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 42 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 )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in German and English and held by 9 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

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

Looking for China girl( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happens when women become a rare commodity? Looking for China Girl is a documentary that explores China's one child policy which was introduced as a measure to stabilise China's burgeoning population and has now resulted in over 500 000 abortions and many more girls being killed once they have been born. The film looks at the underlying issues, from the increase in professional women in China who have rejected their traditional role, to the overwhelming lack of women in the provinces. It also asks why China's crime rate has tripled in the last 20 years, with police struggling with loutish behaviour, gangs, and the disappearance of young women

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
