The rest of Joy Division are shrouded in darkness as they pour out their harsh metal thunder. The singer's body shakes, rocks and palpitates, a mad dervish of motion and movement all caught in that one mad spotlight. Were you to shine a torch around this subterranean scene you would see the young, tidy faces of Joy Division and notice perhaps the ordinary neat cut of their clothes. An unremarkable image, with the barest hint of the regimental overtones of their name in the flap-pocket shirts two of them are wearing. Both people can be right at the same time. Everyone's living in their own little world," reflects Ian. "When I was about 15 or 16 at school I used to talk with me mates and we'd say: right. As soon as we leave we'll be down in London, doing something nobody else is doing.

The story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division has been told twice on film so far, once as a facet of Michael Winterbottom's 24-Hour Party People and then again as the full subject of Anton Corbijn's Control. The absent characters of the story show up in their own unique fashion–Deborah Curtis, Ian's wife and the author of the book upon which Control was based, is only represented by quotes, whereas the band's late manger, Rob Gretton, is viewed through snapshots of his meticulous notebooks.

The formed a band, Joy Division. Three years later it was a matter of art, life and death. Now, thirty years later, they are enjoying a larger audience and more influence than ever before, with a profound legacy that resonates fiercely in today's heavily careerist music industry and over-mediated pop culture. From director Grant Gee and producers Tom Atencio, Tom Astor and Jacqui Edenbrow. Joy Division chronicles a time of great social and political change in England and tells the untold story of four men who transcended economic and cultural barriers to produce an enduring musical legacy.

Closer is the second and final studio album by English rock band Joy Division, released on 18 July 1980 by Factory Records. Produced by Martin Hannett, it was Joy Division's first posthumous album and was released two months after the suicide of the band's lead singer and lyricist Ian Curtis. The album reached No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart and peaked at No. 3 in New Zealand in September 1981. Closer was also named NME Album of the Year. It was remastered and re-released in 2007.

Regarding Joy Division’s use of the image, Craft said it was a total surprise. A Cornell astronomy professor he was friends with was the first to bring the album to his attention. I went to the record store and, son of a gun, there it was, Craft said. So I bought an album, and then there was a poster that I had of it, so I bought one of those, too, just for no particular reason, except that it’s my image, and I ought to have a copy of it. For further reading, Scientific American delves deep into the science of pulsars and the means by which the image was made. In This Article: Joy Division.

At the point in their career when they recorded Love Will Tear Us Apart, Joy Division were arguably poised to become the biggest band in the country. On their debut album Unknown Pleasures the one-time outsiders of Manchester punk had, through sheer hard work – and a crucial relationship with producer Martin Hannett – defined a compelling and audacious landscape of apocalyptic dread.

Visualized interviews Joy Division’s graphic designer, Peter Saville, about the data visualization origins of this simple yet powerful image. Everyone and their uncle (particularly the kind of uncle who was into new wave back in the day) has seen the iconic cover for Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures, which has become one of the most identifiable pieces of cover art of its age and beyond. But have you ever wondered how this textured virtual landscape came to be? As part of their upcoming conference in New York, Visualized interviewed graphic designer Peter Saville about how this legendary cover became the image to represent Joy Division

How the members of Joy Division and his widow Deborah remember the singer. Born in Lancashire, Curtis pursued his musical dreams, forming Joy Division with Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris in 1976. They released just two albums, Unknown Pleasures, in 1979 and Closer, which was released in July 1980, two months after Curtis's death. He had suffered from epilepsy and depression and as Joy Division bassist Peter Hook recalled in a piece written for The Guardian in 2011, Curtis was "very ill" while recording the band's second and final studio album. He wrote: "There was one horrible occasion where he was missing for two hours in the. Hook wrote in 2011 that Curtis had attempted suicide twice recording the band's second album, Closer. Each time he would return to the studio as if nothing had happened.

Joy Division were in existence between 1978 and 1980. They released four singles, three EP's (including compilations with other artists), and three full length albums – "Unknown Pleasures" ( 1979), "Closer" ( 1980) and the compilation "Still" ( 1981). Their best known song, "Love Will Tear Us Apart", reached number 13 in the pop charts during summer 1980: it has since become a 20th century classic. From the start, Warsaw set out to write their own songs. Their initial efforts were crude but enthusiastic, and did not remain in their set long enough to be officially released. As they practised they quickly began to move away from basic punk to something more sophisticated.
