As co-founder of Joy Division, Peter Hook was the inspiration behind a band that would shape the course of popular music. He provided the propulsive bass guitar melodies of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', and was at the heart of the sound that came to define an era and inspire a generation. In Unknown Pleasures, he tells the story of that time; of the music, the madness, the band members and the other characters on the scene that made it the unforgettable, iconic time it was.
