Ian Curtis once secured a TV spot for Joy Division by writing a nasty letter. As stated by Clash Music, Ian wanted the band to play on TV and he knew that Tony Wilson was the person who could make that happen. As time passed, the band still hadn't gotten their shot to play on television. That's the time when Curtis decided to write an angry letter addressed to Tony. According to Clash Music, "He gave Tony the letter and called him a bastard for not having them on." After that, Tony got them onscreen to perform 'Shadowplay' and 'She's Lost Control.'
