Transmission - The Sound of Joy Division

A homecoming show in Birmingham after their mighty 2022 gig! 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. Forty years on you can still
relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission the U.K’s number
one Joy Division tribute act.

“Though I adore Martin Hannet’s studio production, Joy Division live was first and
foremost a pile driving rock band. This ‘Gang of 4’ capture the moment perfectly!”

“It didn’t feel like a tribute band at all. As close to the real thing as you could get.”

“They’re so faithful to the actual songs it’s unreal. Even ones like Atmosphere which you
think wouldn’t work well live, they have the crowd going wild for.”

“Unlike many tribute bands who make great efforts to look like clones of the band they
cover, Transmission concentrate solely on the sound and musical ability of Joy Division
and they pull it off perfectly.”

“Forget looking like a poor replica band – close your eyes at this gig and you would be
forgiven for thinking you were at a Joy Division gig in 1980, the sound is so perfect.”

They will be supported by The Pink Diamond Revue – with curious drumbeats,
psychedelia, an evocative light show and rock n roll riffs. A mix of Talking Heads, David
Byrne, Mick Green Guitar with an angular, David Bowie, plus acid doll! Check them out
via the usual platforms..
