Audience with Peter Hook @ HMV Manchester 
Peter Hook and The Light UK Tour 2013


As Peter Hook's UK tour performing New Order's 'Movement' and 'Power, Corruption & Lies continues, he drops in at HMV 90 Market Street in Manchester on Monday 4 November 2013 for a very special Q&A and book signing.

As an extra special incentive, 200 copies of the clear vinyl 'Movement' previously available at the HMV Oxford Street store will be given away gratis and for nothing to the lucky first 200 to attend. Copies will be distributed before the Q&A, after which Hooky will meet fans and sign copies of the album.

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."
