Peter Hook will discuss ‘Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division’, his “indelibly personal” memoir about that band he was in once, at a number of signing events taking place throughout October.

Muses Hooky of the book(y)’s real life inspiration: “It’s very strange. Over the years Joy Division has become a huge part of music culture. A lot of people think they know what happened. But they don’t. Anyone who’s ever written a book or made a film about Joy Division, unless they were sat in that van or car with us, they don’t know anything about it. Me, Barney, Steve, Ian, Rob, Twinny, Terry and Dave. Only us lot know what really happened…”

Though, presumably, we too will know what really happened come 1 Oct, without having ever shared either a van or a car with the band, by reading Hook’s book. Well, I’m sure that’s what the blurb will say.
