Iconic Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook — he of the impossibly low-slung four-string — turns 55 today, and to mark the occasion, we present Joy Division’s long-out-of-print VHS concert film “Here Are the Young Men,” released in 1982 and filmed primarily at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester on Oct. 27, 1979. The quality is a bit dark and grainy, and the uploader didn’t include the opening credit sequence set to “Decades” — but there’s some bonus material at the end.
