Additional notes
Joy Division were a British rock band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester. They were originally named Stiff Kittens, then changed their name to Warsaw and finally became Joy Division before recording and releasing their first 7" EP "An Ideal For Living". They considered themselves one of the pioneers of post-punk movement.

Shortly after the suicide of Ian Curtis on the 18 May 1980 –following troubles with grand mal seizures (a form of epilepsy), depression, and other contributing personal factors happening in his life– the band was renamed to New Order, following a pact between all four members made long before Curtis's death that should any member 'leave', the remaining members would change the name of the group.
