Ian Curtis had aspirations beyond the trappings of small-town life in 1970s England. Wanting to emulate his musical heroes, such as David Bowie and Iggy Pop, he joined a band, and his musical ambition began to thrive. Soon though, the everyday fears and emotions that fuelled his music slowly began to eat away at him. The strain manifested itself in his health, and with epilepsy adding to his guilt and depression, desperation took hold. Surrendering to the weight on his shoulders, Ian's tortured soul consumed him.
