HOOKY DOES JOHNNY CLARKE THEN THE LOWRY

In what should be a Salford legend spectacular, Peter Hook is interviewing John Cooper Clarke on Radio 4's Chain Reaction next week, while Hooky himself is being interviewed tonight on the same show by comedian Simon Day.

Meanwhile, Peter Hook And The Light have announced a special homecoming gig at The Lowry in November where the band will be performing both Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer for the first time ever.

Eeeh, there'll be some stories to tell when Hooky interviews John Cooper Clarke for Radio 4's Chain Reaction next week. The only snippets we've got is that Sugar Puffs, Velvet Underground and the English GSCE syllabus will be discussed but there's bound to be lots, lots more.

Johnny Clarke was on the infamous Sex Pistols bill at the Free Trade Hall with Joy Division, and later, New Order supported JCC on his tour of New Zealand and Australia. Too many strange times? And is it going to be for real or poshed up for Radio 4? Find out when the interview is aired on a show called Chain Reaction at 6:30pm Friday 12th August and repeated on Saturday 13th at 12:30

Before that, tonight, Hooky himself is being interviewed on the same show by comedian Simon Day at 6:30pm. It's repeated tomorrow, Saturday, at 12:30, and on 12th August at 12:30.

Meanwhile, Hooky's band, Peter Hook And The Light are playing two gigs at The Lowry on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November. For the first time ever, both Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer are going to be performed in their entirety.
