The long awaited second Peter Hook book “Unknown Pleasures - Inside Joy Division" has finally been published today in advance of the accompany signing and event tour which kicks off with a signing in Manchester this coming Monday 1st October at HMV.

Reviews of the book have been highly favourable, MOJO labelling it ““the most colourful and intimate account of Joy Division ever written” and Hooky “a marvellous raconteur with keen descriptive skills” while Q Magazine termed the memoir, “memoir, a bittersweet, profanity filled recollection of their brief existence, delivered with much often indiscreet detail” and delivered this final epithet on the book

“If you like Joy Division, you really have to read it.

Loved meeting Peter at the book signing at WHSmiths in Birmingham in October but wish his photographer for the day would post the pictures up of us with him as my stupid camera gave up at the crucial moment!
