Peter Hook and The Light
Perform Unknown Pleasures & Closer
Fri 18 November - Sat 19 November
This event has passed.
Peter Hook and The Light perform Joy Division’s debut album Unknown Pleasures and its follow up, the final album Closer sequentially and in full. Both Martin Hannett produced albums are considered seminal, much loved classics and the influence of both LPs remains pervasive today, both for fans and for the many emerging bands who take on the template of Joy Division’s sound in the modern era.
Running through the albums in track order, Unknown Pleasures, 'simply one of the best records ever made, and still powerful enough to floor you 10/10' (NME), sees The Light start with Disorder and follow up with Insight, New Dawn Fades, She’s Lost Control before finishing the LP’s performance with I Remember Nothing.
The Light will then turn to Closer, whose haunting, austere atmosphere and emotive content is considered a 'start to finish masterpiece' (Pitchfork Media). As Hannett’s incandescent production permeates the record alongside a band that had grown much in confidence since their debut, Closer also yielded many landmark Joy Division tracks including Atrocity Exhibition, Heart And Soul, and Twenty Four Hours.
Doors open 7.30pm.
