the atrocity exhibition

ever dream of the opportunity to live in the home of a celebrity? well, that chance could very well come true for whoever is willing to plunk down 115,000 pounds to live in a home that was once owned by Joy Division front man Ian Curtis…and to prove this isn’t a hoax, here is the actual real estate listing. the house has been inhabited previously, though it’s uncertain if the tenants were aware of its history.

shortly after the announcement was made, concern arose as to whether re-developers would bulldoze it to make room for (gasp!) condos. that’s when the idea came to launch a campaign to convert the home into a museum. just imagine…the sounds of “The Atrocity Exhibition” playing on the loudspeaker as patrons enter…”this is the way, step inside”…

77 Barton Street, Macclesfield. it’s not much to look at on the outside, but the inside is full of memories.
