The Flowerpot in Derby welcomes two of the UK’s best tribute bands to New Order and Joy Division – True Order and Transmission – to its stage for a double bill concert next week.
From Manchester, True Order are the world’s most authentic tribute to New Order.
They perform the iconic band’s most popular hits such as Blue Monday, Regret,True Faith and Bizarre Love Triangle as well as less mainstream songs like Procession, Dreams Never End and Everything’s Gone Green.
They also occasionally play tracks by Joy Division, Electronic, Monaco and The Other Two.
Transmission are devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig,
Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of their gifted 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.
The gig is on Friday, May 20 at 8pm and entry is £12.
Tickets are also available in advance from the venue or online from Raw Promotions at www.rawpromo.co
