Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 14th February 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980

Happy Valentine’s Day – BTG Week Of LOVE!

“Love Will Tear Us Apart” is a song by English post-punk band Joy Division. It was written in August 1979, and debuted when the band supported Buzzcocks on their UK tour from September to November of that same year. It is one of the few songs in which singer Ian Curtis played guitar (albeit somewhat minimally) on live versions. The lyrics ostensibly reflect the problems in his marriage to Deborah Curtis, as well as his general frame of mind in the time leading up to his suicide in May 1980. The title is an ironic reference to “Love Will Keep Us Together”. Deborah had the phrase “Love Will Tear Us Apart” inscribed on Ian’s memorial stone.

The song was first released as a single in June 1980 and became the band’s first chart hit, reaching number 13 in the UK Singles Chart. That October, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” peaked at number 42 on the American disco/dance chart. It also reached number 1 in New Zealand in June 1981. The band postponed their US tour after Curtis’s death, performed a few short sets as The No-Names, then finally renamed the group as New Order.

The song was originally recorded at Pennine Studios, Oldham on 8 January 1980 along with the B-side, “These Days”. This version was similar to the version the band played live. Ian Curtis and Martin Hannett, however, disliked this version, which has since become known as the “Pennine version”, and, as a consequence, the band reconvened at Strawberry Studios, Stockport in March to re-record it. Whilst Curtis, who generally did not play guitar at all, played guitar on the song live – the band taught him D major specifically – the guitar on the recording was a 12-string Eko guitar played by Sumner.

The 12″ cover photo is a detail of the Ribaudo family tomb in the Staglieno Cemetery in Genova, Italy. The sculpture was made by Onaroto Toso.
