Bassist brings us closer to truth
THE bassist behind cult band Joy Division will be in Bristol this week to sign copies of his tell-all book.
Peter Hook will be at Fopp, in College Green, at 6pm tomorrow, as his book Unknown Pleasures goes on sale.
The book is a colourful and intimate account of Joy Division – the band he formed in 1976 along with Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris.
He said: "Over the years Joy Division has become a huge part of music culture. A lot of people think they know what happened. But they don't. Anyone who's ever written a book or made a film about Joy Division, unless they were sat in that van or car with us, they don't know anything about it. Me, Barney, Steve, Ian, Rob, Twinny, Terry and Dave. Only us lot know what really happened."

Joy Division rapidly evolved from their initial punk rock influences to develop a sound and style that pioneered the post-punk movement of the late 1970s.
In 1980 on the eve of an American tour, Curtis committed suicide. Joy Division's posthumously released second album, Closer, and the single Love Will Tear Us Apart became the band's highest charting releases. After the death of Curtis, the remaining members continued as New Order, achieving critical and commercial success.
