Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division
By Peter Hook
Joy Division changed the face of music. Godfathers of the current alternative scene, they reinvented rock in the post-punk era, creating a new sound - dark, hypnotic, intense - that would influence U2, R.E.M., Radiohead and many others. Inspired by the attitude and energy of punk, Peter Hook and school friend Bernard Sumner joined lead-singer and lyricist Ian Curtis and drummer Stephen Morris, and with some cobbled-together instruments, they created their own unique sound. In 1980 they had released two albums and were on the cusp of touring America when Ian Curtis committed suicide.
Peter Hook reads Unknown Pleasures, an unabridged audiobook, giving his candid account of life inside Joy Division. He talks about Curtis's suicide and covers the band's friendships and fall-outs; their rehearsals and recording sessions; and the many larger-than-life characters who formed a vital part of the Joy Division legend. Unknown Pleasures is available on CDs or download, this November from AudioGO.
