Listing Detail Tabs

Unknown Pleasures is the debut studio album by English post-punk band Joy
Division. It was recorded at Strawberry Studios in Stockport in April 1979, with
Martin Hannett as producer, and was released on 15 June 1979 by Factory
Records. It followed an abandoned album for RCA Records.

No singles were released from Unknown Pleasures, though the release of
“Transmission” boosted its sales, despite the album failing to chart at the
time. It has since gone on to receive critical acclaim and is considered a
pioneering post-punk record.

Joy Division were an English rock band formed in 1976 in Salford,
Greater Manchester. Originally named Warsaw, the band consisted of singer Ian
Curtis, guitarist and keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and
drummer Stephen Morris.

Formed by Sumner and Hook right after they attended a Sex Pistols gig,
Joy Division transcended their punk roots to develop a sound and style that made
them one of the pioneers of the post-punk movement. Their self-released
1978 debut EP, An Ideal for Living, drew the attention of the Manchester
television personality Tony Wilson. The sleeve's Germanic imagery drew
criticism and speculation on their politics, not helped by later name changes.
Joy Division's debut album Unknown Pleasures was released in 1979 on
Wilson's inde­pende­nt label Factory Records. Aided by Martin Hannett's sparse
production, it was a critical success with the British music press.
