Peter Hook & The Light performing both ‘Substance’ collections from New Order and Joy Division. Was a brilliant performance. I first (and last) saw New Order back in 2001, when Hooky was still playing with them and that show still holds up as one of my favourites. The show last night at The Astor was special to hear those tracks again live, dance around with friends and remember all the times songs have provided the soundtrack to important moments in my life. Thanks @peterhook_thelight. ✌🏼#peterhook#peterhookandthelight
Discovered the Substance record via an old HS mate’s cassette. I’d never heard any song quite like that version of Bizarre Love Triangle. I fell for that song with all its 80s synth production, hymn like lyrics in the face of futility, and its optimistic arrangement - dang it even has a banjo in it. Today it’s still one of my very favourite songs, and I never thought I would ever this live so last night was slightly overwhelming in all the best ways.
Third time in 6 days at the Corner. This time flying solo to see Peter Hook and the Light's Joy Division show, with a warm up of a few New Order songs. As I have said before Hooky puts on a great show and he suggested they'd be back next year. #joydivision#peterhook#peterhookandthelight @peterhook_thelight
I never thought I would get this chance... seeing the music live that informed so much of my adolescence... that I still adore today. What a kick to get to see #peterhookandthelight @cornerhotel yesterday and again tonight. Last night was all the New Order classics: Ceremony, Temptation, Blue Monday, True Faith, Bizarre Love Triangle... and it was followed by some classic Joy Division! Leaders of Men, Transmission, Atmosphere, Warsaw, She’s lost Control and of course their seminal Love Will Tear Us Apart💖 I cant wait for tonight! #joydivision#neworder#richmond#music#livemusic#soexcited#crappyphotography
