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. In the beginning ot the 80's, new-wave bands were not
only trying to make money but to express what they lived and felt. In the Mancunian group - one
has just to see or listen to their gigs to be aware of it, there is a feeling of abolute emergency.
No cheating, no advertising (no musician name or picture on the records sleeves), no marketing
strategy. They are here because they have to, even if they do not feel like it. Absolute urgency,
as the need for your lover's eyes, the comfort of a friend or the smile of a child; urgency that pushes
you to the limits, and even further, whatever the cost.
