Joy Division's 'Unknown Pleasures' Beamed On To Manchester LandmarksTo celebrate the album's 40th anniversary...

The artwork for *Joy Division's* seminal debut album 'Unknown Pleasures' was beamed on to landmarks around Manchester last night (June 15th).

The album is a landmark in British music, a hugely influential release within the post-punk period that still holds up to this day.

Released on Factory Records, it helped to solidify the label's reputation as key tastemakers, and played a pivotal role in Manchester uncovering an ability to re-imagine itself in the post-industrial era.

Tributes have been flowing in, with 6Music host Mary Anne Hobbs playing 'Unknown Pleasures' front to back on her show.

Last night - June 15th - the 'Unknown Pleasures' artwork was beamed on to sites across Manchester.

A fitting tribute for an album so innately informed by its surroundings - check out some photos below.
