MLF: Stephen Morris and Jon Savage in Conversation
Sunday 20 October 7.30pm
Suitable for age 14+ (advisory)
40 years after Joy Division’s seminal debut album Unknown Pleasures, drummer Stephen Morris and acclaimed music critic Jon Savage (This Searing Light, The Sun and Everything Else; England’s Dreaming) reflect on the impact that Joy Division has had from the late ’70s to the present day, taking in the brilliance of the music, lyrics and post-punk tension. They will also discuss New Order’s embrace of drum machines and dance music, the importance of place, the joy of record collecting and Stephen’s excellent memoir, Record Play Pause.
