From Rhino's website:
"When rock journalists throw around the term “post-punk,” there’s a good chance they’re utilizing it because they’re talking about Joy Division. The band emerged from Manchester, England in the late ‘70s, brandishing a sound which was dark, powerful, and nearly impossible to ignore. Their career was all too short-lived, however, due to the depression that gripped lead singer Ian Curtis, who took his own life just as the band was about to embark on their first U.S. tour, and while the other members of the band soldiered on – perhaps you’ve heard of New Order? – the work Curtis did whilst in Joy Division remains some of the most acclaimed of its time."
