Peter Hook and the Light Channel New Order Tomorrow at Webster HallSeptember 12th, 2013
Former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook formed Peter Hook and the Light three years ago—along with his son Jack Bates (bass), Paul Kehoe (drums) and Andy Poole (keys), and eventually David Potts (guitar)—originally under the auspices of performing both Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, live in their entirety. But things clicked, and in 2011, the group put out an EP, 1102/2011 (stream it below), shortly thereafter followed by Unknown Pleasures Live in Australia (stream it below). And now Peter Hook and the Light (above, performing “Ceremony” and “Digital”) are back out on the road, this time playing New Order’s first two albums, Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies. And you can see them take the stage tomorrow night at Webster Hall.
