Hailing from Manchester, England, Joy Division profoundly affected the alternative music scene. Arriving as punk music was waning, Unknown Pleasures is the debut studio album by the English rock band Joy Division. It followed an abandoned session for RCA Records, and was eventually recorded and mixed over three weekends at Strawberry Studios, Stockport in April 1979 with producer Martin Hannett. The album was released on 15th June 1979 on Tony Wilson's Factory Records. Factory did not release any singles from Unknown Pleasures, and although the success of the band's debut single "Transmission", which was not on the album, increased its sales, the album did not chart. It has gone on to receive sustained critical acclaim as a pioneering post-punk record.
