Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Joy Division were a post-punk
band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. The band dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of its lead singer, Ian Curtis
. Much of their popularity/reputation arguably resulted from frequent playings on air by iconic DJ John Peel, but it is easy now to overlook the impact that the first album, Unknown Pleasures
, had on post-punk music at the time, as reference the number of prominent bands that cited this album as an influence.
