Someone (not me, although I threatened to do it many times) has corrected the Ian Curtis mural on Wallace Street in the central Wellington suburb of Mount Cook. If it had been me I suspect I would have done a better job and not used pale pink to cover white.
This went up about three years ago around the time of the 25th anniversary of Curtis' death.
And has bugged me ever since, especially since I drive past it every time I go to netball or Frisbee. Over three years thats a lot of vision.
I mean if you care enough about the man, and are motivated to risk a wilful damage charge to express that feeling, surely you would get the dates right? Curtis' lifespan as painted was 1960-1981. Which isn't right. He was alive from 1956-1980, as our intrepid editors have rightly corrected. Well, attempted to correct at least.
Maybe Budgie knows more about all this. After all, Budgie RULZ:
PS, if you are wondering who Ian Curtis is, google "Love Will Tear Us Apart", and follow the links around for a while.
