It’s a defining album. Joy Divisions’s “Unknown Pleasures” album. Released in 1979, three years after the four-piece band formed in Salford, UK.
“Unknown Pleasures” was the band’s debut long-player. And the first of only two albums. In May 1980 singer Ian Curtis commited suicide. The rest of the band later reformed as New Order.
The album itself was not only relevant because of its songs, but also because of its cover. Here’s a video with “former Factory Records graphic designer Peter Saville.” [source]
