The first in a groundbreaking series of graphic novel-style books that will take the reader through the heyday of the Manchester music scene, telling the history of three iconic groups - Joy Division, The Smiths and the Stone Roses. The Joy Division story is the story of 1970s Manchester and the first chapter in the city's musical journey. It starts with the touchpaper that was the Sex Pistols gig at the Free Trade Hall - the very next day 'Barney' Sumner bought a Gibson SG guitar, an instruction book, and an amplifier, Peter 'Hooky' Hook got himself an electric bass, and Terry Mason financed a drum kit. They formed a band, Warsaw, which later, and after several line-up changes, became the iconic Joy Division. The rest has gone down in musical history. Brian Gorman's striking black and white illustrations open a window onto the city's landscape, and his text recalls effortlessly the world of 1970s Manchester and the creative explosion it was about to spark. With an exclusive foreword by Peter Hook, Joy Division: The Graphic History will bring the city and its music to life in a completely new and exciting way.
