Video: Peter Hook tells the stories behind some of Joy Division’s classic songs

Bassist Peter Hook recently recorded a 2-minute video for the NME’s Song Stories series in which he discusses the origins of some of Joy Division’s most beloved songs, including “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” “Transmission” and “Atmosphere” — plus the future New Order classic, “Ceremony,” that Joy Division didn’t have time to record before the death of Ian Curtis. Check out the full clip above.

  2. I’d like to see the same interview with he and Barney shoulder to shoulder.

  3. wow, how vague can you be
