Joy Division were a post-punk band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. Originally named Warsaw, the band consisted of Ian Curtis (vocals and occasional guitar), Bernard Sumner (guitar and keyboards), Peter Hook (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Stephen Morris (drums and percussion). 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. The remaining members reformed as New Order and they have gone on to achieve much critical and commercial success.

    Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?
    These sensations barely interest me for another day,
    I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away.

    To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you,
    I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you,
    In a room with a window in the corner I found truth.
    In the shadowplay, acting out your own death, knowing no more,
