From the frighteningly exhaustive Joy Division FAQ:

On the bootleg "Girls Don't Cry", recorded during a Cure concert on May 24 1980, Robert Smith introduces the song "Primary" by saying: "This song is the memory of Ian Curtis". Robert Smith said, at that time, that Ian's suicide prevented his own.
Damnit, Robert, why couldn't you have been a little bit faster then?
