This whole video came about because I read A LOT, but there are certain books I’m not sure I feel like dedicating a video to. It honestly may have just been an excuse to talk about TekWar. I enjoy doing these more casual videos as it feels like much more of an actual conversation with everyone watching.
With the unfortunate end of Joy Division, the remaining members would go on to form a band that would achieve critical and commercial success. The formation of New Order and their implementation of keyboards into their new sound helped set a trend for pop music throughout the eighties. Join Dr.Sanders and Robbie Gore as they take a look at a band unafraid to innovate unexplored territory in the wake of Ian Curtis’ tragic death. In this episode we discuss their first four albums, beginning with Movement and ending with Brotherhood.
That’s right! The time has come for a long overdue discussion about Joy Division. While not a gothic band, (their genre lies mostly in post-punk) there is no denying the influence the group had on the emerging goth music scene. We’re probably all familiar with the album Unknown Pleasures, but maybe this episode will shed some light on the other releases that came out before and after that seminal album.
