Tim Riley Interviews Joy Division’s Peter Hook
WBUR arts contributor and music critic Tim Riley speaks with Peter Hook, bassist and founding member of the legendary band Joy Division, at Porter Square Books on Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. about his new book, Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division.
For the first time ever, the story of Joy Division is told by one of their own. Hook recounts with surprising humor and vivid detail how four young men from Manchester and Salisbury, with makeshift instruments and a broken-down van, rose from the punk scene to create a haunting, atmospheric music that would define a generation. Unknown Pleasures is the book Joy Division fans have been waiting for.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Porter Square Books.
