These Smiths are UK’s best tribute to The Smiths and Morrissey. The band are from The Smith’s home city of Manchester. Formed shortly after their lead singer appeared on the UK television show Stars In Their Eyes, they are renowned a the closest sounding tribute to the real thing
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. 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.
