Cutting it a bit close this month, but, hey, that’s tradition around here at Slicing Up Eyeballs. Nevertheless, we’re back with the May installment of the ever-popular Auto Reverse mixtape series — and it’s one of our occasional themed installments, no less. This month’s tape is all Manchester acts.
Peter Hook will perform Joy Division’s third and final album, 1981’s ‘Still,’ at two concerts in Manchester this May, playing both the first disc’s collection of rarities and outtakes, and then recreating the band’s final concert as included on the second disc. The concerts are set for May 18, the anniversary of Ian Curtis’ death, and May 19.
