Love Will Tear Us Apart 7" review

Magazine: Melody Maker (UK)

Publication date: Saturday 28 June 1980

Reviewer: Martyn Sutton


 

LOVE WILL TEAR US APART

This single, a follow-up to the free flexi [Komakino] which some baddies in record shops have been selling, has been invested with sad significance after singer Ian Curtis' tragic suicide. Joy Division were, and may still remain, an innovative and courageous band. Divorced from emotions such as sympathy, this record offers a taster for their forthcoming album Closer. Evocative, interesting... a powerfully original piece of 80's music
