Joy Division > Discography < New Order

What was it about Joy Division?
They were just so bloody powerful. I just new they were going to be massive. There was no reason to think that really, there were only about ten people at the Factory Club. I couldn't believe it. I just new that this was the new thing. This was it. They were just so much more than what punk had already become, which was just to replace the pub-rock bands really. This was a bigger thing and was artistically more meaningful than punk. For me, anyway.
