Europe’s only tribute to the iconic Manchester band New Order and are considered by many to be the next best thing to watching the real thing. Playing the songs from the early years after the demise of Joy Division, including the haunting ‘Ceremony’, along with the anthemic ‘Temptation’, right through to tracks from 2015’s Music Complete, such as ‘Restless’ and ‘Singularity’, they emulate the rich tapestry of synthesizers, sequencers, drum machines and guitars with the same uncompromising attitude that made New Order pioneers of modern music.
Transmission the sound of Joy Division
Are devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission one of the leading UK tribute bands.
