San Francisco: Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order) to be interviewed live by David Pescovitz

NewImage


I'm thrilled to announce that on January 31, 2013, legendary bassist Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order will appear at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco in an on-stage discussion presented in partnership with Boing Boing and our friends at Noisepop. And I'm doubly thrilled, and honored, that the person he'll be chatting with is me! As regular BB readers know, I'm a lifelong fan of Joy Division and New Order so I am greatly looking forward to this opportunity. Hook has written a new memoir, Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division, where with great candor and wit he recalls the story of four young men in Manchester who played their first gig in 1977 and went on to transform post-punk, dance music, and the aesthetics of alternative culture. Naturally, my first question to Mr. Hook will be: "How does it feel?"

This is a free event but advanced reservations are required. I hope to see you there!

    Wish I could go!  That sounds amazing. 

    I can’t wait to read the book, though.  I wonder how his take on the Joy Division will compare to Deborah Curtis’ take?

    Is Bernard Sumner and the rest of the gang going to be there as well? Perhaps there’s a chance of reconciliation???

    Please ask him why he charges money to pantomime DJing to other people’s pre-recorded mix CDs.
