Ian Curtis Interview with Radio Blackburn, February 1980





 Ian Curtis' interview for Spinoff, On the Wire's precursor, in April 1980. One month before his death, it is believed that this was his last interview. Spyda from Burnley Musician's Collective spoke to Ian whilst Steve Barker held the microphone plugged in the portable Uher reel-to-reel machine in the murky depths of Preston Warehouse.
