PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT


PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT

The pioneering sounds of the highly influential English bands Joy Division and New Order were dominated by the droning basslines of Peter Hook.

In the late '70s, Hook's ominous bass enabled Joy Division to carve portraits of profound despair. Although the late Ian Curtis' harrowing lyrics and downcast vocals are often credited for Joy Division's bleak beauty, many of the group's songs were driven by Hook's sinister, throbbing bass. While badly tuned guitars were the rage during the punk era in late-'70s England, Hook's bass playing instilled the importance of rhythm in punk rock, helping to inspire a generation of dance-oriented new wave bands.

After Ian Curtis hanged himself on May 18, 1980, Hook joined the other surviving members of Joy Division in New Order. In 1990, Hook released One True Passion with his side project Revenge. Collaborating with Dave Hicks (guitar, keyboards) and Chris Jones (keyboards), Hook combined elements of techno and hard rock with Revenge; Hook also sang.
