From interviews with Q Magazine in 2002 and Mojo in 2004 it transpires that in late 2000, John Frusciante and Flea out of Red Hot Chili Peppers (or the 'Red Hots' as Anthony Kiedis refers to them) not only "moonlighted" on Tricky’s Blowback album but also formed an unnamed Joy Division covers band for just one gig. As Q reported then, Flea now "owes more to Peter Hook than Bootsy Collins".

According to NME.com, at their recent sold out gigs in London's Hyde Park the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a series of covers including Joy Division's 'Transmission'.
