Customer Review

on 3 February 2014
This is essentially an auto-biography of Hooky, although as the title suggests it concentrates on the Joy Division era with only occasional mentions of New Order, and it cuts through the myths surrounding Joy Division, and Ian Curtis in particular, without diminishing what they achieved musically. Although Hooky clearly carries a continuing grudge against former band mate and childhood friend Bernard Sumner, it's balanced by self deprecation and a huge amount of humorous anecdotes. For the JD obsessive like myself, there's plenty of detail about music equipment and the like, but you probably don't even need to especially be a fan of the band to enjoy the insights into what it was really like to be an aspiring musician in the heady days of punk. The descriptions of various kinds of mayhem that occurred on the Buzzcocks tour are particularly amusing!
