Remember that story a few months back about the house that Joy Division Ian Curtis lived (and died) in going on the market?
Well, the good news is that the Macclesfield property has been bought by a fan, who plans to turn it into a Joy Division museum.
NME reports that Hadar Goldman, an 'entrepreneur and musician', bought 77 Barton Street for £115,000 plus £75,000 in compensation and legal fees.
"Although I paid £190,000 – nearly double the asking price – I felt as if I had to get involved, especially after hearing the plight of the fans who had failed to raise the necessary funds to buy the house owned and lived in by one of the musical heroes of my youth," he said. "Joy Division left a musical legacy which has influenced many of today’s bands."
Curtis's 35th anniversary occurred this week; he died after committing suicide at the house on May 18th, 1980, at the age of 23.
