Peter Hook QnA at NOISE Lab

Talk

As part of Flux Magazine’s ‘Guest Editor’ slot at the NOISE Free Arts Lab (a Guerrilla ‘pop up shop’ and creative space in the heart of Manchester), the renowned bass guitarist Peter Hook will be offering his words of wisdom at an exclusive Q n A session by Flux Editor Lee Taylor. This free, intimate event is open to all young creatives wanting to pick up unique advice to follow in the footsteps of this musical legend.

Peter remains energetically devoted to music, rock and roll and the experiences that his three decade career has given him, with bands like Joy Division, New Order, Revenge, Monaco and Freebass, and now as a director of the new Manchester indie rock and roll club at the old Factory Head Offices, FAC 251 The Factory.

Hooky’s been-there, seen-more-than-it all thirty years in the business has seen his bass playing redefine the role and inspire countless young musicians across seminal classics such as “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, “Atmosphere”, “Ceremony”, “Thieves Like Us”, “Regret”, “What Do You Want From Me?” and more.

It has been said that Hooky writes the bassline to our lives.

With the honour of being portrayed in two major films “24 Hour Party People” and “Control”, Hooky has recently completed recording work on his upcoming  Freebass project, has been Djing throughout the UK, Europe and the world, and also released his debut book “The Hacienda – How Not To Run A Club” to great critical acclaim in late 2009.

Along with old friend Tokyo Industries Aaron Mellor, Hooky is a co-owner of FAC 251 The Factory and it was with the acquisition of the old Factory Head Offices, Aaron persuaded Hooky that now was the time for him to re-enter the club game. Hooky is to be presenting nights, performing at the club and as well as booking for the venue.
