Joy Division Honored At London Music Awards
Joy Division - who are the subject of the movie Control - disbanded in 1980 after front man Ian Curtis committed suicide. The remaining trio has since gone on to form the critically acclaimed New Order.
The group's record label boss, Peter Saville of Factory Records, was also praised with the Contribution To Music Award, while unsigned acts The Features, Get Shakes and Cool Kids were each recognized in the Best Rock/Indie, Best Electronic and Best Urban categories respectively.
