    Joy Division

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello everyone! So, Joy Division. Before I start, I'm going to STRONGLY suggest you all listen to them. The music is great, original and extremely influential.
    But, the reason I started this thread is because I'm finding it difficult to find bands similar to Joy Division. I find that no other Post-Punk band sounds like them. So, if anyone could help me out, it would be appreciated!

    If you check out the Smashing Pumkins psycho tapes (late 80's) before they had a deal, you can hear the Joy Division influence in the way Corgan made his music.

    obviously new order's stuff, though bernard had a very different voice.

    im weird in that i much prefer new order's sound over joy divisions.
    donaldcrunk - ambient - free music for download
    scenic square - ambient synthpop
    CCCP- dramatic rock with synths

    Love Will Tear Us Apart is a great song, but that's about it. I'm not a fan of that style or The Smiths either. I MUCH prefer New Order.

    Lost my virginity during Unknown Pleasures. Check out the Warsaw recordings as well. I got a bootleg vinyl of it and it's raw as anything you'll ever hear. Much more punk.

    You might be able to compare Bauhaus to Joy Division
