Hook and his new backing band -- featuring longtime collaborators drummer Paul Kehoe (Revenge, Monaco, Freebass), keyboardist Andy Poole (Monaco), guitarist Nat Wason (Freebass), and Hook's son Jack on bass -- first performed Unknown Pleasures in May at the Factory, Hook's Manchester nightclub, during two charity concerts honoring the 30th anniversary of Curtis' death. The reception was positive, says Hook, and he sees performing the Joy Division material as his right.
"I should be able to go out and play the most important record I've ever made," he says. "Literally my whole life and career have been founded on that record."
Peter Hook was the co-founder of Joy Division and member of New Order till 2007.
