Legend tells that like Buzzcocks, Joy Division began (as Warsaw) after the band’s founding members witnessed a 1976 Sex Pistols show in Manchester. One of the first to record for that city’s ground-breaking Factory Records, Joy Division made music which transcended rock and pop norms, creating a unique zone of mourning, dread, trance and possession. Dead Souls is a double album compilation of 21 non-album tracks recorded by Joy Division between October 1978 and September 1980; it ends with two Joy Division songs recorded after vocalist Ian Curtis killed himself, with guitarist Bernard Albrecht standing in on vocals and eventually released under the name New Order.
