Peter Hook The Sage Gateshead 20 April 2010
Unknown Pleasure Spoken Word with compere Howard Marks
The evening was a chance to hear Peter Hook talk about his life with Joy Division, New Order and the Hacienca club. The stage was set out with several of Hookie’s bass guitars and various memorabilia from the bands and the Hacienda. Howard Marks came on and introduced Peter Hook who strapped on his bass and treated us to a couple of instrumentals. Then it was into the Question and Answer session with Howard Marks asking questions on behalf of the audience (we had all been invited to write questions on a card before the show). Some interesting insights into the early days of two great bands and “how not to run a club”.
