If there’s one bass player you always recognize when he pulls his strings it’s PETER HOOK also known as HOOKY. The man who created a sound that was fundamental and essential for Joy Division as well as for New Order. The man who plays his beloved instrument as if it has six strings instead of four. Hooky‘s resonance is unique and ageless as he still proves, for years now, with his band The Light, on stages around the globe.
Today is his 65th birthday! Happy B. Hooky!
Let’s celebrate with these four standouts…
– LOVE WILL TEAR US APART –
(Joy Division classic)
– ATMOSPHERE –
(Joy Division classic – with awesome soul voice Rowetta)
– TEMPTATION –
– ARIES –
(A superb song by Gorillaz with Hooky here on vocals instead of
Damon Albarn. It’s on their new Song Machine album)
