Packed with outrageous anecdotes and the “gleefully profane” (Entertainment Weekly) storytelling of his first two books, SUBSTANCE is a no-holds barred, comprehensive history of New Order that will more than satisfy Hook’s fans and thrill new readers. At once a raw and revealing memoir, SUBSTANCE is also a compelling snapshot of the era that brings readers backstage to the 80s music scene in all its now nostalgic glory. I’ve included a longer description below, and just let me know if you’d like another galley or more information.
Peter Hook was born in Salford in 1956. He was a founding member of Joy Division and New Order and DJs internationally as well as touring both bands’ music with his band Peter Hook & The Light. He also promotes The Hacienda and recent Hacienda Classical concerts all around the world. Peter now lives in Cheshire with his wife Rebecca and children Heather, Jack and Jessica and Bo, their dog.
