Joy Division

Profilo:
Joy Division were a British rock band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester. They were originally named Stiff Kittens (2), then changed their name to Warsaw (3) and finally became Joy Division before recording and releasing their first 7" EP "An Ideal For Living".

Ian Curtis (vocal, occasional guitar), Bernard Sumner (guitar, keyboards), Peter "Hooky" Hook (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Stephen Morris (aka "The Human Drum Machine") (drums, percussion).

Shortly after the suicide of Ian Curtis on the 18 May 1980 –following troubles with grand mal seizures (a form of epilepsy), depression, and other contributing personal factors happening in his life– the band was renamed New Order, following a pact between all four members made long before Curtis's death that should any member 'leave', the remaining members would change the name of the group.

Back in the late 70's/early 80's the term "new wave" was used in a general sense for any modern, non-mainstream rock that wasn't punk. In that sense JD was a new wave band, as were bands like Talking Heads, U2, and most of the acts that showed up in something like "Urgh: A Music War." As time went on, "new wave," like "alternative" and "indie" became such a broad term that it was almost meaningless. Put it this way: if you called something "new wave" in 80 or 81 most people knew what you were talking about. By 84 or 85 that was no longer the case.

And can we put a stake through the heart of the word "genre"? It's the most overused term in all of pop music; I absolutely hate when you recommend a band or artist to someone and their first question is "What genre is it?" The correct answer is "Who cares?" The only thing that the word is good for is to make internet searches easier. Otherwise, it's totally vacuous.

I read all the reviews, and this seems much more a forum. I got something to say. When JD started they were absolutely a new wave band (they were part of the new musical scene emerged NOT after, but WITH the punk explosion). There's no one reason to consider JD out from this genre. I sayd genre and not style: new wave is full of different styles. What we call post punk saw JD as one of the "absolute beginners". But please don't forget Public Image Limited. I use to say Rotten invented punk and Lydon invented new wave (really enough for just one Johnny); perhaps this is not historically correct but i'm sure if the irish antichrist was dead after Metal Box we'd have tought at him as a genius, if not a saint (ah-ah!)
In Italy we called this music DARK, long before gothic or darkwave or post-punk or whatever. For some reasons i find it appropriated. 
Time destroyes, death conserves. And so, back in 1981, Psychedelic Furs were considered from a lot of people the most interesting thing. It seems they (and Echo & the Bunnymen too) could build the bridge to put togheter the best sixties art music and dark (or post punk or new wave or..). Time destroyed PF reputation but at the meantime Unknown Pleasure and Closer got about 150 reissues while i'm writing. Sure Ian Curtis would has never believed it. JD knew the quality of their music, but in 1980 they had no one only reason to think they could be remembered in the future just a little bit more than a cult status band.

Legendary, admired, heroic and visionary, yes - sadly, the over-exploitation of Joy Division to the present day is just becoming sickening, degrading the group's legacy to the point of overrated-ness.

I think all records/releases after 1980 should not be listed in "Albums"!

when you talk about Joy Division, Ian Curtis speak, my ela chieso first question I have is: what would have happened to joy division, and how they would develop their success. Ian loss is heavier than any of the icons, like Jim Morrison or other, maybe just the Bowie death, it is heavier than that of Ian. if in three years the joy division have become such a famous band that will probably, at least in Italy, has been known and followed by today's teenagers, who have not forgotten them, or even follow them anyway, or rather, that in the following Hookie his concerts recalls Joy Division, could become a band with a very high result and drawing an indelible groove in all the music, just look at the singers, who did cover over them, who knows .....

Labeled by the Discogs "community" as a "new wave" band, I was concerned as to whether Hairsparay 100 or Kajagoogoo could possibly be ranked above JD in the "New Wave" category, considering both sold far more units than JD. Well, all things considered, any reasonable person would have to conclude Joy Division a bunch of New Wave wankers compared to bands like ABC and Buffalo Girls. Maybe that's why Ian topped himself; Barney's a much better New Wave front man than Ian, in his epileptic nightmares, could ever have "dreamed" of becoming...
