THE glorious and tragic legacy of arguably the most revered post-punk band of all time will receive the definitive telling in Bangor next week.

Theatr Pontio’s unique series of psychedelic silent movie screenings Psylence returns with an unmissable opportunity to view rare footage and hear one of the UK’s foremost music writers Jon Savage discuss Salford legends Joy Division.

One of the UK’s greatest and most well respected writers about pop and rock music, Savage is the author of England’s Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock, Teenage: The Creation of Youth, 1875 – 1945 and 1966: The Year the Decade Exploded.

Undoubtedly the most exciting and influential band of their generation - and still immensely popular and revered - for this Psylence event, the author will discuss the band and his new book This Searing Light, the Sun and Everything Else: Joy Division: The Oral History’.

Paired with of rare footage of the band playing live at the Manchester Apollo in October 1979. Earlier on in this tour the band played here in Bangor University.

This was Ian Curtis, Stephen Morris, Bernard Sumner and Hooky’s only Welsh concert held at a location metres away from the present location of the theatre!

To catch Savage in discussion about Joy Division, head to Theatr Pontio on Wednesday, July 7 at 8.15pm.
