Default MB Essential Guide Poll: ***Joy Division***



Joy Division

This poll ends on October 10th

The current list and the guides created so far can be found here http://www.musicbanter.com/general-m...tml#post521880

Rules:

1) Please submit five tracks that you feel are the artists' best - they can be hits, album tracks, b-sides, rarities...anything you want, really - but please include the releases on which the songs appear. The five songs with the most votes will appear on the list.

2) Please submit one album that you feel is the artist's crowning glory, their classic album, if you like. Whichever album gets the most votes will appear on the list. Live albums are allowed but compilations are not allowed.

3)
Please submit two artists which you feel have a similar sound, either from the same era or genre, that would give an indication of how the artists sounds and also would be a good suggestion for further artists to explore. The top two or three will be posted, depending on number of votes.

4) Please include a brief line or paragraph that explains exactly why the artist means so much to you. The best of these will be included as quotes beneath the artists' names, on the list
PLEASE NOTE THAT, ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT COMPULSORY TO INCLUDE ONE, QUOTES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE WITHIN THE LIST. SONG AND ALBUM RECOMMENDATIONS ALONE WILL NOT GIVE USERS THE FULL PICTURE. TELL US WHAT AN ARTIST SOUNDS LIKE, WHY YOU LIKE THEM AND WHAT KIND OF INFLUENCE THEY HAVE ON TODAY'S ARTISTS.

5) Polls will be open for a week, after which I will collate the votes and transfer the results to the list. I shall also re-edit the first post of the artists thread to show the full write up.

6) Polls will be launched twice a week.

7) Every artist must receive at least five sets of votes. If, after a week of polling, a particular artist has not received five or more sets of votes, then that poll will still remain open but will not get onto the list until another chance comes around, possibly a few months later.

Each entry is set out in the same way. Here is a key to the information you can expect to find...

"Quotes will appear before and after recommendations. These quotes are by MusicBanter.com users, offering some additional information on the artist, or personal testimonies as to why a particular artist means so much to them. Each entry can feature a maximum of four quotes, but some may only feature one, depending on the quantity, quality and relevance of the quotes submitted." - name of user who submitted the quote

ALL-TIME TOP FIVE:
Song recommendations are collated from the top five songs, as voted for by MusicBanter members. In some polls, tie-breaks may occur, in which case two songs may be placed together, or ranked in relation to which order tied songs received their maximum number of votes.

RECOMMENDED ALBUM: Again, album recommendations are determined by votes and, in the event of tie-breaks, multiple titles may be recommended.

(POLL VOTERS, AS DESIGNATED BY SONG TITLES BY THE ARTIST IN QUESTION: This is a list of every user that participated in the poll.)

1) FIVE TRACKS:

1. Disorder (Unknown Pleasures)
2. Love Will Tear Us Apart (Substance)
3. Digital (Substance)
4. Shadowplay (Unknown Pleasures)
5. Atrocity Exhibition (Closer)


2) ONE ALBUM:
Unknown Pleasures



3) TWO ARTISTS
Wire (Chairs Missing era)
New Order


4) When I had first heard of Joy Division, I was a senior in high school, just starting to get into idie rock, and owned few if any punk/post-punk record. I had heard about Joy Division for awhile, so I picked up "Closer". I fucking hated it. I thought it was silly. I gave it to a friend, and moved on.

About 6 months later I heard "Warsaw" (A punkier tune) on a punk compilation, and after getting into Wire, gave "Unknown Pleasures" a chance. it took a bit to grow on me, but I DEFINATELY recieved it better than Closer. I now own that, Closer, and Substance, and enjoy all of them. The message here is, they can be really tough to get into, they have a very wierd sound. But give them a chance, they're well worth it.

Similar artists:

Paved the way for all minimalist and industrial and many of the more interesting indie bands with their debut unknown pleasures, one of the very few albums i have never tired of and one of the finest post-punk albums to ever be made...a big statement from me.

Did someone say Interpol?


Joy Division is band of which I can never tire - if I had to describe their sound I would call it intense, barren, cavernous, depressing, insular, neurotic and soulful. Yes, all those things at once. And they're one of the bands which got me into post-punk.
