+ from this author
In this first public Manchester signing since the release of “Unknown Pleasures”, this Joy Division book in October 2012, Peter Hook comes to Fopp Manchester Friday 5th May from 530pm onward for an appearance to mark the release of four live albums by Peter Hook & The Light on vinyl, CD and digital.

Each title featuring the band performing a classic Joy Division or New Order album in its entirety with songs added that were not on those albums: singles, demos and other rarities. All four albums are to be first released as strictly limited edition colour deluxe vinyl versions for Record Store Day 2017 on 22nd April on the Let Them Eat Vinyl label.

This will then be followed by the CD and digital release of all four albums on 5th May 2017.  Both the vinyls and CD editions of the releases will be available at the Fopp signing which is currently Hooky’s only confirmed signing for these releases.

The titles are;

The Light        “Unknown Pleasures- Live At Leeds Cockpit – 29th November 2012
The Light        “Closer – Live At The Factory” – 18th May 2011
The Light        “Movement – Live At Dublin Academy” – 22nd November 2013
The Light        “Power, Corruption & Lies – Live At Dublin Academy” – 22nd Nov 2013

In addition, since Hooky did talks and events in Manchester surrounding last Autumn’s release of his third book, “Substance – Inside New Order” but no actual public signing, the event also marks an opportunity to pick up a signed copy of the much acclaimed work.

Having first revisiting Joy Division’s seminal album “Unknown Pleasures” back in May 2010 for a commemorative charity concert, Peter Hook & The Light have followed  it each year with performances of new albums from the repertoire of Hooky’s bands, New Order and Joy Division. The band have now moved through each of the albums from those bands to arrive at Factory Records “Substance” compilation albums which they are currently touring world-wide.
Hooky’s dedication to his back catalogue has seen him move  through “Closer”, “Still”, “Movement”, “Power Corruption & Lies”, “Low Life” and “Brotherhood” to arrive at the seminal compilations and having toured extensively with the band, The Light have come to amass some 450 plus shows in the seven years since their first concert
PETER HOOK AND THE LIGHT premiere more tracks worldwide from the upcoming quartet of special live shows released soon on Westworld Recordings.
Vive Le Rock showcased “Shadowplay” from the ‘Unknown Pleasures’ set recorded in Leeds. Check it out here:

On Peter Hook And The Light Live
“Peter Hook & The Light have developed into a well-oiled machine that – whisper it – actually deliver these songs better than the current line-up of New Order….they’ve become an impressive tour de force more than worthy of associating themselves with arguably two of the finest back catalogues in rock and roll history.”  Drowned In Sound
‘A masterclass in euphoria and heartache in equal measure…. The chronology of the set played perfectly as high spirits continued to grow right up until the end of the show.” Gigwise
“This is New Order reinvigorated, reenergized; Hooky has arguably reclaimed the songs and is delivering them with heart and soul.” – Louder Than War
“It was certainly one of those special shows were the venue, artist, and fans all clicked perfectly to make for a very memorable experience and a blazing hot and awesome show by a legendary artist and performer, who in my opinion is the heart and soul of New Order keeping the most authentic live performance of their music alive for old and new fans.” Rock Subculture
“By focusing solely on the music, and allowing the songs inherent structure to do the heavy lifting inste of blowing them up into pseudo-stadium cuts, their inherent virtues were that much more apparent. Frankly, these songs rock…..This is Peter Hook and his band taking a chance, dusting off wrongly ignored tunes, and kicking ass. “Punk News
