Ian Curtis (Joy Division) "death house" is for sale - should it be a museum?Watch
A group of fans is trying to crowdfund buying the house in order to make a museum... but should they?
former bandmate Bernard Sumner isn't convinced and thinks it might become a morbid monument to suicide http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....legend-8696021
Currently it's an typical looking terraced home without even a blue plaque. it's not ideally placed for a tourist trap. Parking looks limited. Neighbours will (IMO) probably object to anything that increases the number of gloomy looking music lovers hanging about the street.
Strange note: the market for rockstar memorabilia doesn't really seem to extend to houses. Someone bid £8k for the Ian Curtis 'Death table' on ebay fairly recently http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/2093...-sold-on-ebay/
£115k for the house is fairly typical for the area and the estate agent is not publicising the properties history.
