On the one hand, the heavy legacy of the legendary Joy Division, a short-lived band that is still the object of veneration by countless fans around the world of the post-punk scene (and beyond) and who has had influence over thousands of other bands over the years: on the other hand, the transformation in the New Order, the turn towards an electronic sound and their impact on the next generation of musicians and listeners have made the Manchester band one of the names that have directed the course of the world music scene as he managed to few others.
Elbow - Over twenty years and with seven studio albums, Elbow have won many of the awards that distinguish a successful band. Their bulletin board contains three Ivor Novellos awards, a Mercury Music Prize and a BRIT award for Best British Band. Their most recent albums, 'The Take Off and Landing of Everything' (2014) and 'Little Fictions' (2017), have both debuted at number one in the UK album charts. The singer and leader Guy Garvey who also has his own radio program on BBC 6 Music, was awarded two prizes in 2018 for his contribution to English music.
