On Monday 18 May, Headstock will be taking over the United We Stream platform to host a special evening of music and conversation to remember the life and legacy of Ian Curtis, and will be joined by two of the Joy Division singer’s bandmates, New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris.
‘Moving Through the Silence’ has been curated to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of the Joy Division frontman, as well as the start of Mental Health Awareness Week – both of which fall on 18 May.
The major beneficiaries of donated monies will be the Manchester mental health charity Manchester Mind.
The interviews with Bernard Sumner & Stephen Morris are part of two hours of live and exclusive conversation, music and poetry curated by music & mental wellbeing festival, Headstock, and DJ/writer Dave Haslam and presented on the GMCA’s United We Stream platform.
The Killers frontman, Brandon Flowers, will be talking about the influence of Joy Division on the band.
Other interviewees include Ian Curtis's friend Mark Reeder, and there will be a special appearance from Maxine Peake.
Headstock’s broader mission to ‘use music to change the conversation on mental health’ will be further supported with performances from Elbow, LoneLady, and the Lottery Winners, as well as acclaimed Irish rock band Kodaline.
Also performing; Jennifer Hardy, poet Oliver Lomax, and the Royal Northern College of Music’s Northern Session Choir.
The event will be streamed via unitedwestream.co.uk/ - and can also be accessed via www.facebook.com/UnitedWeStreamGM/
The event is free to view, but donations are strongly requested, with 70% of the donations going to the mental health charity Manchester Mind. The remainder will be divided between Nordoff Robins and the Mayor Of Greater Manchester’s Charity.

Would have been so much better if hatchets were buried for just 1 day, but there you go.
