Joy Division

Joy Division Overview

Joy Division were an English post-punk rock band formed in Salford, Greater Manchester in 1976. Guitarist and keyboardist Bernard Sumner and friend, bassist Peter Hook were inspired by watching a Sex Pistols gig at a local hall and embarked on their own rock career. Soon to follow were drummer Stephen Morris and singer Ian Curtis. From their punk roots they developed their own style to become one of the apparent pioneers of the post-punk movement happening in Britain at the time. They will always be remembered for their biggest hit “Love Will Tear Us Apart” before re-emerging as New Order.
