    Fan of Joy Division here. When I was whoring out Unknown Pleasures, I was pretty much an emo kid who thought he was Ian Curtis.

    Wow.. funny thing, I was just going through my old New Order stuff the other day.

    I don't listen to much of today's music, so I can't really help you.

    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!
    i have unknown pleasures, substance, and closer... i even have some warsaw singles somewhere collecting dust...

    for similar stuff maybe check out really old ultravox (like circa 1977)

    Joy division are the leaders of the post punk movement. Check out the film " 24/7 party people " in order to understand why they were important and what era did they come in.

    Joy Division was important in the sense that they redefined relationships between instruments within a rock band format. The guitar was pulled back to be more even with the bass and drums. Their bass ( Peter Hook) played his bass an octave higher than what was the norm at the time, giving it more of a lead instrument position. The drums were more mathematical and precise like a drum machine and the guitar in some space between rhythm and lead. This may sound all "meh" now..but in 1979, this was quite radical..now you have a huge number of artist ranging from U2 to NIN name checking JD as a crucial influence.

    The Ian Curtis biopic "Control" is good as well.
