#DidYouKnow “She’s Lost Control” by Joy Division draws primary lyrical inspiration from a young woman experiencing a violent epileptic seizure?
It all goes back to Ian Curtis’s tenure as an Assistant Disablement Resettlement Officer at a Macclesfield occupational rehabilitation centre. It’s over here he encountered a woman who had epilepsy and had been desperate to find employment.
However, she would suffer seizures whenever she visited the centre. Eventually, her condition worsened and it physically prevented her from attending her appointments at the centre.
This was something that disturbed Ian greatly since he assumed she found a job, which was the reason she didn’t attend. Later, the real reason was that she died of an epileptic seizure.
This inspired Ian to pen the lyrics to “She’s Lost Control”, which tells a grim tale of the stigma endured by individuals suffering from neurological impairments. .

I am known to ascend to great heights in the name of entertainment, fun, performance / art. But at the end of the day, it’s all about Love. I’m so grateful I get to make and perform music again, this time with a message I full heartedly believe in. If you never seen me live before, or its been awhile, what a perfect opportunity! I’m so excited! See you this Saturday @spiritpgh !!! 📷: @film_photojournalism
