Joy of Life formed in the early 1980's. Band members at that time were Gary Carey - Bass/Keyboards/Vocals, Peter Fordham - Vocals, Trevor Martin - Guitar/Keyboards, Kevin Gregory - Drums/Percussion and Glenn Fenton - Guitar.

A mini LP 'Enjoy' was recorded and released on NER (New European Recordings) circa 1984. Joy of Life's second recording an LP entitled 'Hear the Children' was released by the band when a recording deal with a not to be named Italian record label fell through. Both recordings were also released as a single CD by defunct German label Hyperium. Some individual tracks have also featured on a number of compilation CD's/Cassettes.

Gary Carey collaborated with Douglas P. on the Death in June recordings 'To Drown a Rose' EP and 'Brown Book' LP. Gary Carey also guested on keyboards on the track 'Since Yesterday' featured on the Current 93 LP 'Swastikas for Noddy'.

Joy of life disbanded in 1988 and reformed briefly in the early 1990's.

Gary Carey guested with Apoptose at the Wroclaw Industrial Festival in 2007, where 'Warrior Creed' was performed live for the first time ever. It is likely that a version of 'Warrior Creed' featuring Gary Carey on vocals will appear on the next Apoptose CD.
