"Former members of Joy Division have hit out at the sale of – and media reporting on – a kitchen table formerly owned by the band's frontman Ian Curtis. Meanwhile, the man selling the table says he can't wait to get rid of it…. The man selling the table, Tel Harrop, says that he was careful when wording the listing not to focus on the more macabre aspects of the object, which was present in the room where Curtis took his life in 1980. 'When I put the listing on I could have said a lot of things but I didn’t want to, you know. I would have bought the table if it had been his lounge table – I just bought it because it was an unusual item. Everyone’s got the records – I‘ve got the table.'"
