Legendary New Order and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook remains energetically devoted to music, rock and roll and good times, whether with his new band, The Light, DJ'ing throughout the globe with FAC 51 The Hacienda and as himself, or as an author, having now written books on both his experiences with The Hacienda and his first band, Joy Division

His been-there, seen-more-than-it all thirty years in the business has seen Hooky bass playing saw him redefine the role and inspire countless young bassists across seminal classics such as "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "Atmosphere", "Ceremony", "Thieves Like Us", "Regret" and more. Also having been portrayed in two major films "24 Hour Party People" and "Control", aside from this the influence of New Order, Joy Division, New Order and Factory Records continue to be name-checked by innumerable modern bands, such as The Killers, White Lies, The Enemy, The Chemical Brothers and Hot Chip.

When Peter Hook and his fellow Factory records cohorts opened The Hacienda in 1982 and released "Blue Monday" in 1983, both the club and the band's musical direction proved a source of inspiration to DJ's, clubbers and promoters throughout the rise of dance music throughout the 80's and 90's, becoming rightly regarded as pioneering club culture as we know it today.

Recruited into DJ'ing by The Stone Roses' Mani, Hooky's Djing style spans the tracks which defined a musical generation, where the genres of indie and dance were fused together and where boundaries were broken as he surveyed both the rise of acid house and the Madchester scene from his vantage point as an owner of the Hacienda. Plaing tunes present to the Hacienda / Manchester revolution, classics, exclusive remixes and upfront material to book, Hooky continues to DJ across the best clubs and festivals in Europe and across the world.
