Joy Division fan Terry Harrop has put Ian Curtis' kitchen table back up on eBay for as second time after failing to sell it on the auction site two years ago.

The auction caused controversy when it was originally listed back in 2013 after Curtis' family and former band-mates took offence at the sale, labeling it 'distasteful and upsetting'-as the table comes from the very room in which Curtis took his own life.

The table originally sold for £8,400 two years ago but it seems as though the highest bidder never went through with the purchase-as it is back up on eBay again.

Originally Harrop claimed that he 'didn’t put it on for the money' and that he 'just did it for good intentions.' This time round however he is hoping to use the cash from the sale to fund recordings and equipment for his band.
