Transmission The Sound Of Joy Division – 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. Forty years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission the U.K’s number one Joy Division tribute act.
The Velvets – The Velvets are dedicated to reproducing the sound and atmosphere of a Velvet Underground gig from the 1960s. The Velvet Underground are considered by many to be the most important and influential alternative rock band of all time. Championed by Andy Warhol and seriously underappreciated, perhaps until Punk came along.
Concentrating on what could be considered the classic halcyon period for the band and interspersing both Nico and Lou Reed vocals with the experimental nature of many of those early recordings, The Velvets concentrate on a “Live” sound and pay little attention to any attempt at visual similarities to the original members (barring the odd pair of shades!). Classic tracks performed by the band include Waiting for the Man, Venus in Furs and All Tomorrow’s Parties.
Mules – Mules are a heavy Post-Punk band from Brighton. Their sound is a mix of spiky wiry punk rock combined with lyrics that are both personal and political and often reference systems of control, hegemony, and a healthy dose of paranoia. Their debut single ‘Clapping For Carers’ is out now via HalfMeltedBrain Records.
