Known Pleasures takes a look at the highly influential music that washed up in the wake of the seismic splash that was punk. Call it post-punk, or new wave, but from 1978 to 1984 bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees, PiL, Gang of Four and Joy Division were re-defining what was possible in this brave new musical landscape of machines, rhythms and electronics. In turns affectionate, amusing and anecdotal, our own Gang of Three former amateur indie musicians dissect the albums, songs and tours that made this experimental era one of the most important in rock history, scattering their own personal recollections and insights amongst the facts along the way.
