Transmission: Joy Division Tribute at O2 Academy Islington


TRANSMISSION - Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission one of the leading UK tribute bands.

THE RAMONED - The current Ramoned line-up formed in early Summer 'm2016 when founding members Stevie(guitar) & Davey(vocals) went searching for a new rhythm section. Ryan was recruited on drums quickly followed by bassist (and former Shamones guitarist), A.J.

With members from Leicester, Kidderminster, Wolverhampton & Cardiff they have based themselves in Birmingham. The band play a classic Ramones live set as near to the original live sound as you will get. No gimmicks, no wigs, The Ramoned play fast and furious recreating the authentic sound of a Ramones show, already building a reputation across the Midlands and beyond!
