Joy Division were an english band, composed of Ian Curtis (vocals), Peter Hook (bass), Stephen Morris (drums) and Bernard Albrecht (AKA Sumner, guitar).

They emerged from the punk movement around 1976, and became in less than 3 years time, the ultimate new-wave group, even in the eye of fellow-bands like U2, Echo And The Bunnymen or The Cure.

Joy Division's music is at the same time, dark and limpid, oppressing and liberating, dramatic and stimulating, in a word, it is filled with life.
