Peter Hook prepares for autumn 2013 UK Tour 
Peter Hook tour flyer

The ever-busy bassist has been busy touring the U.S. with complete renditions of the first two New Order albums, Movement and Power, Corruption and Lies. On his return to these shores in the autumn, much to the delight of those who missed his earlier gigs featuring these two classics, Peter Hook and the Light will embark on a UK tour performing the very same albums, as well as b-sides and singles from the era.

Liverpool will be the first stop on 24th October, followed by Leeds, Colchester and several more before finishing up in Belfast on 23rd November.

Tickets are on sale now from usual outlets including Allgigs here

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
