Joy Division

UK NEW WAVE (1978) … NEW ORDER (1981)

Peter Hook (b. 1956), Ian Curtis (1956-1980), Stephen Morris (b. 1957), Bernard Sumner (b. 1956)

Joy Division is formed in Salford, Greater Manchester in 1977, and publishes 41 songs in three studio EP/LPs and five singles between 1978 and 1981. It disbands upon the May 1980 suicide of its frontman Ian Curtis, aged 24, who was suffering from epilepsy and depression. Joy Division’s dark and low-spirited musical sound soon becomes emblematic of the early 80s goth-rock genre of the post punk movement. In 1980, the remaining three members create the group New Order, which reaches worldwide success from 1983 to 1993 with its refined and catchy techno new-wave rock.
