Seeing (Peter Hook and) the Light

February 11, 2013

I really have to stop coming up with awful titles for my blog posts.

Anyway, whatever. My plan to average at least one gig a week isn’t going brilliantly if I’m honest, but I’m only a week behind.  Or a gig behind.


I heard about Peter Hook playing Clwb Ifor Bach just before Christmas and really wanted to get a ticket, but I had a nagging feeling about it that it could be a total shambles. I don’t know why. I’d seen him in conversation at Latitude a few years ago and thought he came across as quite honest and funny, but since his split from New Order I wondered if either of them would be any good without the other.


The day before the gig I got a text asking if I’d be up for shooting it for the venue and with the gig being sold out by this point I jumped at the chance. With it being an intimate warm up gig for the band before they played a few bigger gigs such as Koko in London and Manchester Cathedral, I really didn’t want to miss the chance to see, let alone photograph, someone who has been involved in creating some of my favourite songs of the last 30ish years.



I already know this is going to be one of my favourite gigs of the year!
