inside Joy Division
"Originally published in the UK in 2012 in slightly different form by Simon & Schuster UK"--T.p. verso
Part one : Insight. Oh fuck, it's Steve Harley
Timeline one : May 1948-April 1976
Part two : Disorder. Normal band, normal night, few people watching, clap-clap, very good
Is that a bass guitar?
He was just a kid with "Hate" on his coat
He was one of us
I can't actually think of anything less 'us' than a wet-towel fight
The twats were flicking the V's up at us
Apart from the odd pint pot in the gob, it was a good gig
Even the shit ones were pretty good
I told him exactly where he could stick his vibrators
Timeline two : June 1976-December 1977
Part three : Transmission. It was like The X factor for punks
We need to get rid of this Nazi artwork
The biggest rain of spit I've ever seen in my life
Timeline three : January 1978-December 1978
Part four : Love will tear us apart. Peter's fell off his chair again
Fuck, Martin's got a boot full of stolen radios
It sounds like a fucking helicopter
He was looking for that spark
Not that I'd change anything
Stop fucking moaning, Hooky
I just went for a piss
You shouldn't trust a word I say
Bring it on
Turned out to be horse meat
He's possessed by the devil, that twat
Unknown pleasures track by track
Timeline four : January 1979-December 1979
Part five : Ceremony. A right mother hen
We carried on
He thought we were pricks
and how right he was
His mum got the blood out by washing it in a bath of saltwater
We were so excited about going to America
I never said good-bye
Closer track by track
Timeline five : January 1980-October 1981
From Library Staff
Founding member and bass player Peter Hook recounts how four young men from Manchester and Salisbury, with makeshift instruments and a broken-down van, rose from the punk scene to create a haunting, atmospheric music that would define a generation.
