    Joy Division

    Joy Division were an English rock band formed in Salford in 1976. The group consisted of vocalist Ian Curtis, guitarist/keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris. Sumner and Hook formed the band after attending a Sex Pistols concert.



    Curtis was born on 15 July 1956, at the Memorial Hospital in
    Stretford, Lancashire, and grew up in a working-class household in Macclesfield, Cheshire.[
    He was the first of two children born to Kevin and Doreen Curtis.
    [From an early age, Curtis was a bookish and intelligent child, displaying a particular flair for poetry. He was awarded a scholarship at the age of 11 at Macclesfield's independentKing's School. Here, he developed his interests in philosophy, literature and eminent poets such as Thom Gunn.
    While at King's School, he was awarded several scholastic awards in recognition of his abilities, particularly at the ages of 15 and 16. The year after Curtis had graduated from King's School, the family purchased a house from a relative and moved to New Moston.

    Curtis commited suicide before that single was released. The band reformed after as New Order.

    The 80's were a golden period for the Manchester music scene, which in no small part revolved around The Hacienda.

    Bands such as Sad Cafe, The Smiths, The Stone Roses and Oasis thrived during this decade.

    I would strongly suggest putting 'Transmission' and more urgently, 'Ceremony' on your Spotify.

    Sad Cafe and Oasis definitely didn't thrive in the same decade.

    I went to The Hacienda in about 1983.

    There was one punter in there apart from us. He was reading 'Crime And Punishment'.

    Quite possibly the best of a very good crop
    certainly my favorite band

    only 2 albums really but lyrical masterclass both

    not cheerful i grant yu but cermenont, disorder, atmosphere and love will tear us a part are peerless
    and shes lost control is a standout

    there's a very good Henry Rawlins clip on youtube explaining why you should listen to joy division

    failing that

    That was before the rave scene took off and i believe was more of a drop in youth club back then.

    It's all swanky apartments now.

    Watching episode 3 of "Your Honor" last night and there's a scene where the son is in his room, headphones on, having a private rave to 'Love will tear us apart', which was great to hear again.
