TRANSMISSION – ‘The sound of Joy Division’ + guests tbc
8pm, Friday 1st December, The Portland Arms, Cambridge
The monthly tribute club continues at The Portland Arms with the December edition devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig. Taking to the stage will be ‘Transmission’ who 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 leaving behind a legacy of material that has stood the test of time. 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.
