Peter Hook & The Light release video prior to London & Manchester gigs…

Peter Hook & The Light will follow the worldwide success of their performances of Joy Division’s albums by performing New Order’s first two albums, ‘Movement‘ and ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ live and in their entireties as well as related singles and B-sides at KOKO in London on January 17th 2013, and a very special hometown gig at Manchester Cathederal on January 18th 2013 – the Manchester gig has already sold out.

Interest in these this gigs has for obvious reasons been very high – the band are to perform both albums in full, and in sequential order, airing album tracks such as ‘Dreams Never End’, ‘ICB’, ‘Age Of Consent’, ‘586’ and ‘Your Silent Face’ alongside the singles from the same period which include ‘Ceremony’, ‘Everything’s Gone Green’, ‘Temptation’ and ‘Blue Monday’

A short video promo for the Koko gig has been produced by The Light’s long term video collaborator Joseph G Rios


Prior to these gigs the band are set to perform a very intimate warm-up gig; Wednesday 16th January 2013 at Club Ifor Bach, Cardiff – this gig will provide a rare chance to see this show in such an intimate setting – Tickets are still available, but are very limited.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
