‘Rock writing rarely tells us properly what a band treading water or in slow decline feels like from the inside. Hook does so memorably.’ (Guardian)
‘The 768 pages will delight both New Order-ites and general rock readers, revealing the astonishing human bathos behind this group's godly future-rock […] The way Joy Division and New Order combined high art with base behaviour is well established but this book rides that tandem to new dimensions […] but there's much more than carnage’ (Mojo)
‘Set against a lurid backdrop of orgiastic tours, awash with drink, drugs, and a debauched retinue of dealers, hookers and mad roadies, Hook drawing from a seemingly bottomless well of outrageous anecdotes, many of them hilarious and told with the same droll voice that delighted readers of The Haçienda: How Not to Run a Club’ (Uncut)
‘Epic rock tale of sex, drugs and jealousy […] A must for fans, it's wildly funny and revelatory' (The Sun)

A thoroughly absorbing and highly recommended read.
I always felt an affinity for Hooky - he just always seemed to come across as the genuine article.
Reading this book confirms why.
Having just been too young to see Joy Division, and never in the right place at the right time to witness New Order - if for no other reason, I will always be indebted to Peter Hook & The Light for gifting me live performances of the back catalogue, without any of the primadonna antics, painfully and hilariously recounted in this addictive book...
Is Barney a tw@t? I wish Hooky would just tell us.
Another top hook book.

Perspective and context unbiased, from my perspective!
I'll read the Barney book next and see if that correlates.
Love him or loathe him this is another excellent effort from Hooky. He doesn't pretend to be objective... Read morePublished 2 months ago by S. Armstrong
