Unknown Pleasures - Inside Joy Division 
Peter Hook has announced a nationwide book signing and event tour to accompany the publication of his second book 'Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division' on 1 October 2012. The tour (with some dates featuring talks/Q&A) includes Manchester, London, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin.

In the book, Hooky will tell the story of Joy Division's friendships and fall-outs; their rehearsals and recording in the way that somewhere who was there can.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
