A rollercoaster, inside-story of life, love and loss with Joy Division.
As co-founder of Joy Division, Peter Hook was the inspiration behind a band that would shape the course of popular music. He provided the propulsive bass guitar melodies of “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, and was the heart of the sound that came to define an era and inspire a generation. In Unknown Pleasures, he tells the story of that time; of the music, the madness, the band members and the other characters of the scene that made it the unforgettable, iconic time it was.
Peter Hook was born in 1956 in Salford. He was a founding member of Joy Division and New Order and DJs internationally as well as touring Joy Division’s music with his new band The Light. He lives in Cheshire
