A Hi Fidelity Vinyl Experience

The next AudioCollective event will feature Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division on Saturday 23rd September at The Swan.

This vinyl experience  will feature a full rendition of the classic 1979 album selected by the membership from a choice of post punk albums including offerings from The Cure and The Gang of Four.

Unknown Pleasures was released on 15 June 1979 on Tony Wilson’s Factory Records label. Recorded and mixed over three successive weekends at Stockport’s Strawberry Studios in April 1979, the album was produced by Martin Hannett, who incorporated a number of unconventional recording and production techniques into the group’s sound. The cover artwork was designed by artist Peter Saville. It is the only Joy Division album released during lead singer Ian Curtis‘s lifetime.

The album will be played on new equipment supplied by the AC crew and also include discussion (not too heavy!) video footage (of the performer) and a chance to bring along and play your own related vinyl. Each month we’ll be giving away a fresh copy of the vinyl in our free to enter raffle too – how generous is that!
