PUBLISHER: Dey Street Books
In this final installment of his internationally bestselling trilogy of memoirs, Peter Hook describes the 1980s new wave and post-punk scene and the rise of one of the most important bands of the Second British Invasion: New Order.
In May 1980, Joy Division had the world at its feet. Then the band's troubled lead singer, Ian Curtis, committed suicide. In the wake of that tragedy emerged New Order. The band's distinctive sound--a fusion of post-punk and groundbreaking electronica--paved the way for the dance music explosion that followed and continues today. This innovation would earn them the reputation as one of the most influential groups of their generation, and change the course of popular music on both sides of the Atlantic.
Substance is a no-holds-barred account of New Order's entire history. Containing outrageous anecdotes, tales of excess and astonishing creative perseverance, Substance is also packed with rich detail, complete discographies, and fascinating technical information about how the music was made. It is also a rollicking read, sure to impress with Hook's talent for recalling the most intimate detail and spinning an epic yarn.
