How many musicians can say they helped found a genre? Peter Hook can claim to have done it twice. As bassist in Joy Division, he shaped the dark and angular sound of post-punk. And, while holding down the same role in New Order, he brought an irresistible pulse to new wave and participated in the birth of electronic dance music. Now, as leader of Peter Hook and the Light, the bassist-producer-writer-educator is paying homage to both of those iconic bands.

On its current tour, the outfit is performing both Joy Division’s Substance and New Order’s LP of the same name in their entirety. Both albums are compilations of the respective bands’ career highlights, so definitely count on hearing the hits.
