** And later, after it was known he had epilepsy, fans would show up sometimes ''hoping'' he would go into a seizure during shows, which Ian alludes to in the opening lines of "The Atrocity Exhibition": "''For entertainment they watch his body twist /
Behind his eyes he says, 'I still exist.'''"

** Yet, despite all the weird things he did and the legends that accumulated about him, Hannett was [[BunnyEarsLawyer a master producer]] whose oddball experiments were pioneering in their use of space in sound recording. His use of delay circuits set to the lowest possible setting (i.e. the wrong way to use a delay circuit) created a sparse, eerie sound that's just as instrumental as inventing GothRock as Joy Division themselves were.

However, the relentless touring had a negative effect on the band. Ian Curtis had epilepsy, and sometimes suffered seizures during concerts, leading to their cancellation. His seizures were getting worse as the band continued touring, but he pushed himself to the point of exhaustion, as the band needed to tour to become better-known in the fairly exclusive music scene of the 1970's: He concealed the extent of his disability until the breaking point. His lack of sleep and alcohol abuse only added to his severe depression, and he committed suicide on 18 May 1980 (supposedly after watching ''Film/{{Stroszek}}'' on TV and listening to Music/IggyPop's ''Music/TheIdiot'').

* LeadBassist: Peter Hook carried the melody on a Rickenbacker bass, not unlike [[{{Music/Yes}} Chris Squire]] or [[{{Music/Rush}} Geddy Lee]].

* LeadBassist: Peter Hook carried the melody on a Rickenbacker bass, not unlike [[{{Music/Yes}} Chris Squire]] or [[{{Music/Rush}} Geddy Lee]]. His tendency to play basslines rather high up on the bass came about because in the early days of the band, it was the only way he could be heard with a weak amplifier.
