Peter Hook of Joy Division

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Joy Division founding member and bass player Peter Hook tells the story of the band, which is credited with reinventing music in the post-punk era, and influencing U2, Morrissey, R.E.M., Radiohead, and numerous others. In 1980, just after the release of their groundbreaking debut, “Unknown Pleasures,” and on right before their first U.S. tour, the band’s lead singer, Ian Curtis, committed suicide. Hook’s book Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division recounts how four young men from Manchester and Salisbury, with makeshift instruments and a broken-down van, created a new sound that would define a generation.
