New Order’s bassist Peter Hook is working with two other great British bass players: former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke and former Stone Rose and Primal Scream bassist Mani.

The speculated supergroup appears to have come to fruition with Hooky talking online that they’ve named themselves Freebase.

Peter Hook has been talking about the group to various sites; telling us a bit more about what the new material will sound like, he explains, “As for the music itself, it's a really weird cross between northern soul, reggae, New Order, Stones Roses and the Smiths. The three basses work together on a few tracks, which I was delighted about, because everyone was laughing at us for wanting to do it."

The supergroup is still searching for a singer, and in an interview on music site higher-frequency.com, Peter Hook jokes about their attitude.

“Mani said, ‘We've gotta find somebody who's unknown, Hooky, so we can fuckin’ persecute him!’ So we're looking for someone who we can persecute, for all our years of persecution!"

Hook speculates that Freebase might have settled on someone, saying, “We've found a kid in Wigan, he's been in a few bands before, and he's done a couple of tracks, a couple of ideas that were really good.”

The three bassists have apparently got 17 songs written, so hopefully we’ll be hearing something soon.

New Order in battle with Joy Division film director

Band say 'Control' director has too much - eh - 'control'

New Order have criticised the makers of Joy Division film 'Control'.

The band were set to record the soundtrack to the movie, currently being shot by long term photographer Anton Corbijn. However bassist Peter Hook has said things are not going according the plan.

"I'm pissed about the movie right now because Anton Corbijn (director) seems to be getting too much control, precisely," he explained. "I would have preferred that he showed more respect for us. That's what he should do...Anton is too passionate about the movie but I think he should have a wider view. At the beginning he would say: 'Come everyone to help' but now he closed the doors and sent everyone to piss off."

The bassist told Pagina/12 magazine he was particularly annoyed that Corbijn was getting involved in the band's musical contribution.

"We're suppose to (record the film's soundtrack) but the problem is that he's telling us what to do," said Hook. "If we don't tell him how to direct, why is he telling us how to make music? Bernard (Sumner - singer) and Stephen seem to be OK about it but it bothers me a lot."

As previously reported, 'Control' is based on the book 'Touching From A Distance' by Ian Curtis' widow Deborah and stars newcomer and stars 10,000 Things frontman Sam Riley

Phil Cunningham: A busy man

Phil Cunningham as we know is a full time member of New Order (actually on tour in South America). In his spare time he is also an active member of Marion.

Marion are a rock band, originally formed in 1993, in Macclesfield, Cheshire. They became synonmous with the Britpop music scene, appearing on the legendary Britpop Now BBC television special. Influenced by local stars like Joy Division, Buzzcocks and The Smiths, they were hailed as possible successors to the last-named but never achieved the success predicted for them, falling prey to the so-called "Curse of Morrissey" — Morrissey's praise and support for young bands were said to be fatal. Unfortunately, Jaime's well documented drug addiction got in the way of a very promising career and they split up in 1999.

In 2006 Jaime Harding and Phil Cunningham recruited a new set of musicians and reformed the band and are currently working on new material having played their first live gig together as Marion in over 7 years on the 1st April 2006 in Bath. They followed this up with sold-out shows in Manchester and London in September 2006.

Radio revives the video star

Channel 4's online version of The Tube has captured its anarchic energy, while adding extra attitude

Paul Robinson
Monday October 23, 2006
The Guardian


 
It must be the longest commercial break in history. After 19 years off the air, the iconic music show The Tube is back. The new incarnation captures all of the anarchic innovation of the original television show, which ran for five seasons between 1982 and 1987, but it is not on TV - it is a radio show to be streamed on the internet at channel4radio.com.

Bands on the first show, which goes online on November 3, include New Order, Camera Obscura, Clinic and Eskimo, playing live in front of an audience at Blueprint Studios in Manchester. The producers, north-west-based independent UK1FM, have pulled off something of a coup in persuading Freebass, the collective name for Hooky, Mani and Andy Rourke of New Order, Primal Scream and the Smiths, respectively, to compose the show's signature tune, which, just to complete the name-dropping, has been remixed by the Utah Saints. Such is the affection for The Tube that Michael Stipe of REM also pops up in a phone interview with Hacienda and Factory Records guru Tony Wilson.

So why is 4Radio going to so much trouble and expense to revive an old TV format? Part of the answer is that there is nothing like The Tube in British media now, in a world dominated by thematic music channels from MTV and Emap. It is also that there is genuine desire at Channel 4 to create innovative fresh radio that broadens the range of commercial stations and offers an alternative to the BBC. Nathalie Schwarz, director of 4Radio, has already signed up John Peel's son Tom Ravenscroft to present a weekly new music show, and the revival of The Tube is just the next step in developing Channel 4's music portfolio.

At Sunday's recording of the first radio Tube the producers made every attempt to capture the "DNA" of the original, while also making the show contemporary. The bands played live on a huge stage, big enough to accommodate three acts simultaneously, with the presenters able to link from one live act to another without breaks or recorded tracks in-between. The presenters - Alex James from Blur, MTV's Emily Rose and Konnie Huq of Blue Peter - wandered between the bar and the audience, linking the live music, interviews and features as though they were in a club, the antithesis of the conventional radio studio.

One of the innovations in the show is a quiz hosted by Tony Wilson, called Ayepod or Naypod, where the audience is used as an interactive music panel. The idea is to play songs and ask the audience whether they would have it on their MP3 player. The tracks chosen ranged from the bizarre Screamo by Enter Shikari, which left most participants speechless, to the ghastly King Kong by Shanadoo, Japan's answer to the Spice Girls. Ayepod or Naypod is Jukebox Jury for the download generation, but with a freshness and attitude that will make it one of the highlights of the radio show.

In its time The Tube was influential in helping dozens of bands in their careers, including the previously mentioned REM, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Duran Duran and Elvis Costello. The radio Tube is a long way from breaking acts, and as a monthly show without a terrestrial FM window it will need to find its audience. But its importance should not be underestimated. With the exception of Xfm and Virgin, new music that is neither plugged by record companies nor mainstream in its appeal is hard to find on commercial radio. It is to the credit of Channel 4 that they are investing in expensive formats hitherto shunned by radio broadcasters other than the BBC. Ironically, the day that Channel 4 are no longer free to showcase whoever they like because they are being plugged by record companies is the day they will know the radio Tube is a huge success.

"Our initial idea was to do some low key 12" releases for clubs and fans and maybe work with other people we liked and to get away from the rigid structure and politics of the four piece group. We had a lot in common, a lot more than anyone realized, and we were both buzzed about the new times and our new situations . We were a bit naive in thinking that we could put out white label tracks and pretend we were an obscure acid house outfit,"

                                                                     Johnny Marr, taken from sleevenotes.

“Electronic for me on a creative level, was a chance to work with other people whose work I admired, and people that I liked it was as simple as that.”

                                                           Bernard Sumner, taken from sleevenotes.

Tales of iconic club from Hooky

STORYTELLER: Peter HookNEW Order bassist Peter Hook is sharpening his pencil to write a book about legendary Manchester nightclub The Hacienda.

And you might be able to guess the tone of the book from its provisional title - How Not To Run A Club.

Peter tells me: "I realised I'd bored my friends for years with tales from The Hacienda, so now I thought I'd bore the general public with it.

"But once I started to get into the writing I realised what a huge endeavour it was, and that I was going to have to work on it properly to do it justice."

New Order ended up part-owning the club in the Eighties with their record label Factory, but of course it all ended in tears with the eventual demise of the venue - which has since been demolished for luxury flats.

Woe

Hooky says: "To us it's a tale of woe, but The Hacienda did change the world of clubbing.

"Even though it took me to the edge and it took Factory Records to the edge."

To this day Bernard Sumner [New Order's frontman] won't talk about The Hacienda because it's so depressing.

He's not spoken to publishers yet, but I'm sure there'll be a fair deal of interest in snapping up the rights to the book.

Particularly as Hooky says there will be a fair few eye-popping anecdotes of his own in his tome.

He says: "The stories are legion and legendary."

ANTON CORBIJN STARTS SHOOTING HIS DEBUT

FEATURE ABOUT THE LATE IAN CURTIS

CONTROL

On Monday 10 July 2006, today, filming begins on CONTROL, Anton Corbijn’s highly anticipated feature about the late Ian Curtis, the enigmatic lead singer of legendary English post punk band Joy Division.

The cast includes Sam Riley (Ian Curtis), Samantha Morton (Deborah Curtis), Alexandra Maria Lara (Annik Honore), James Anthony Pearson (Bernard Sumner), Joe Anderson, (Hooky), Harry Treadaway (Stephen Morris), Toby Kebbell (Rob Gretton) and Craig Parkinson (Tony Wilson).

CONTROL spans the last few years of Ian Curtis’ life leading up to his tragic suicide in 1980. It charts the struggle between his enduring love for his wife and his burgeoning relationship with his girlfriend, his decimating bouts with epilepsy, his incredible talent and his all consuming performances with Joy Division.

The film expands on Deborah Curtis’ book ‘Touching from a Distance’, a personal account of her life with Ian Curtis.  To achieve a fuller account of the man and his life, script writer Matt Greenhalgh spoke to those closest to Curtis including Annik Honore, who was in a relationship with Ian Curtis at the time of his death. Previously, Annik had declined to discuss the relationship.

The soundtrack will feature original tracks recorded by Warsaw and Joy Division from the late 70’s and 80’s. Other Musicians already confirmed to take part in the soundtrack include David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Roxy Music, Lou Reed and the Buzzcocks. New Order has also confirmed they will compose the score for the film

A CERTAIN RATIO - AND YOU FORGOTTEN
OUT NOW via iTunes
 

"And you, forgotten, your memories ravaged by all the consternations of two hemispheres..." Manchester, 23rd March 2004. The old and the new descended upon The Ritz to pay tribute to one Robert Leo Gretton, the late Joy Division / New Order manager, co-founder of Factory Records, reluctant Hacienda business partner, and a man with whom the word 'mercurial' was inextricably linked. The assembled glitterati formed a who's who (or 'who the fuck are you') of Manchester past & present, as if the council had organised a Manchester Passion-style re-enactment of 24 Hour Party People. A wild party with an atmosphere you could bottle and call a vintage.

This exclusive release is taken from A Certain Ratio's blinding live set that night, and is available from Monday 22nd of May via the iTunes Music Store only - almost two years to the day that the event took place.

The nine track album features tracks from throughout the band's career, from Shack Up right through to Won't Stop Loving You, and also includes a cover of Joy Division's Heart& Soul featuring Peter Hook on bass.

IAN CURTIS 1956 - 1980

 
Ian Curtis - Gone but not forgotten

It was 26 years ago today that IAN CURTIS ended his life, aged 23.

The driving force behind Joy Division's dark vision, he hanged himself in his Macclesfield home as the band rested between a European and American tour. Iggy Pop's 'The Idiot' was found on his turntable alongside a note which read "at this very moment, I wish I were dead. I just can't cope anymore".

Joy Division ceased to be - they had always said they would draw a line beneath the band if any member left. The three remaining members( Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and Stephen Morris) regrouped as New Order during early 1981 (Morris’ girlfriend Gillian Gilbert joined on keyboards) and continue to enjoy commercial success and critical acclaim.

In March 2005 I had the rare privilege to pay tribute to Ian Curtis with no other than Peter Hook. For those who never been to Macclesfield, UK to visit Ian Curtis grave, Some Pictures for you.

New Order win World Cup song poll

BBC News

New Order's 1990 hit World in Motion has been named the best World Cup song by football fans.
World in Motion, which was in the charts as England reached the semi-finals at Italia '90, came top of a Littlewoods Pools poll of 1,500 fans.

Nessun Dorma, the BBC's theme tune for the 1990 finals, came second.

Three Lions '98 by The Lightning Seeds featuring David Baddiel and Frank Skinner was third, with another 1998 song, Vindaloo by Fat Les, in fourth.

Fans voted This Time (We'll Get It Right) by the 1982 England World Cup Squad as the worst World Cup anthem.

It was followed closely by the Spice Girls' 1998 effort (How Does It Feel To Be) On Top Of The World.

Rel: 27/3/06

 ‘Our kids will never be wilder than us’

-Peter Hook

Virgin EMI have teamed up with Peter Hook, bassist from New Order, who shared a founding hand in The Haçienda and was present before, during and after the truly mental times of 1982 and 1997 when the Hacienda finally closed it’s doors.

‘I have so many special memories from those days, the way the DJ’s would select the tunes especially for the club, I remember Sasha’s first set, the atmosphere was electric and he played the best set of his life, the music was perfect as was the crowd, when we left you just knew you’d been a spectator of something very special indeed’ - Peter Hook

The new series of Cracker starring Robbie Coltrane as police psychologist Fitz is sure to be must-see TV, but I hear members of Manchester band New Order will be getting an earlier viewing than most.

For drummer Stephen Morris and his wife, keyboard and guitar player Gillian, are writing the soundtrack for the Manchester-set series.

"I was a fan when Cracker was last on TV so it's great to be doing the music for the new series," Stephen says.

"The writer Jimmy McGovern asked us to do it. It also means we'll be two of the first people to see it."

The husband and wife team, who live in Cheshire, also got their radio DJ debut last month on 96.2 The Revolution - and have been asked back to do more shows in future.

"It was a bit nerve-wracking but a lot of fun," Stephen says.

Manchester v Cancer - MEN Arena - 28/01/06 by James Ellaby

www.entertainmentmanchester.com

With a collection of Manc music legends up on stage throughout the night, playing some of the best songs to come from our city in the last 20-odd years, it was always going to be about nostalgia for the 24 Hour Party People crowd, but the younger acts more than held their own as well, showing that Manchester still has a vibrant scene capable of churning out real quality bands.

The evening kicked off with Domino Bones, featuring Bez on dancing and singing duties, alongside a fiery female singer. They were actually pretty good, although the venue was only about half-full at this stage. Utah Saints got things going with a lively DJ set before the Arena really ignited as 808 State took to the stage and played Pacific State, the night's first classic moment.

After that slice of nostalgia, it was back to the future with one of the city's hottest new acts, Nine Black Alps. They raced through pretty much all of their singles, including Cosmopolitan, Not Everyone, Shot Down and the brilliant Unsatisfied, which went down a treat with the crowd. Then it was a real change of pace as adopted Manc Stephen Fretwell played a few of his much quieter songs, armed only with an acoustic guitar, whilst being mobbed by roadies all round him setting up the stage. Nevertheless, Emily still sounded beautiful...

Next up was Elbow, who were welcomed like conquering heroes and rewarded the crowd with an excellent run through of Leaders Of The Free World before finishing off with Forget Myself in an all-too brief set. Meanwhile, the Arena was filling up nicely, although it was a shame they couldn't fill it for such a momentous gig and for a good cause as well. Mind you, some people in there seemed to be rather missing the point as they puffed away on cigarettes. So much for Manchester v Cancer, eh?

"It's been a great night, hasn't it?" asked Badly Drawn Boy when he got up on stage. "Well, now I'm here to ruin it!" Far from it, actually, as his set was one of the best. He kicked off with a touching new song that he dedicated to a friend who had died the week before, and follows it up with The Shining, although (true to form) he did forget the words at one point. Another highlight of the gig is his segue from Like A Virgin into Silent Sigh, while he finishes off well with a rocking Everybody's Stalking.

Another Manc legend follows him with a DJ set for Mani, who gets a huge cheer when he plays the Happy Mondays. However, another couple of legendary moments were only a few minutes away, with Johnny Marr and The Healers being joined on stage by Andy Rourke, the first time the two Smiths have performed together since the 80s. That they played There Is A Light That Never Goes Out and How Soon Is Now? (with Marr on vocals) was almost spoiling us, with the former getting everyone on their feet and singing along. Magic...

That would have been a fine way to finish the gig, but there was still some real highlights to come, starting with Manchester's best current band, Doves. They played Pounding, Black and White Town, Almost Forget Myself and Snowden, all to great acclaim, before the 'backslapfest' began. They welcomed Badly Drawn Boy back on stage for an excellent run-through of Disillusion, and then are joined by Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr for a surreal rendition of Vicious by Lou Reed, with Barney really camping it up.

After doing R Dean Taylor's There's A Ghost In My House, Sumner leaves and is replaced by Guy Garvey, who helps Doves finish off with There Goes The Fear. Reaching the climax of the evening, Tony Wilson is roundly booed off stage (although faring only marginally worse than John Thompson's jokes and Frank Sidebottom's stage-sweeping before Badly Drawn Boy's set) while introducing New Order, slightly unfairly really. Mind you, he may as well have introducted them as Joy Division, as their headlining set was pretty much all JD songs, which is never a bad thing.

They rock their way through Transmission, She's Lost Control, Shadowplay, Atmosphere, Warsaw, Twenty-Four Hours (performed for the first time since they actually WERE Joy Division) before a triumphant Love Will Tear Us Apart. They were on top form, with Peter Hook prowling the stage and constantly confusing the guy in charge of keeping a spotlight on him at all times. To finish off (mainly because they'd forgotten to play it earlier), they do one of their own songs, Ceremony.

The night's finale was a suitably shambolic Mancunian superstar band (members of New Order, The Smiths, Doves, Elbow and Happy Mondays) playing Wrote For Luck, while Shaun Ryder ambled around muttering the words to that song amongst others (like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), as well as seemingly trying to provoke Barney Sumner into a fight. Luckily, a guy in a shiny yellow coat ran on stage at that point and that was enough distraction to draw Ryder's attention. It seemed like no-one knew how to finish the song, so they all just stopped playing, with Rourke (the organiser of the whole thing) grabbing the mike off Ryder and saying "See you all next year". Hopefully so...

The Smiths' legends Johnny Marr and Andy Rourke were reunited onstage for the first time in almost 20 years in Manchester last night (January 28).

The old pals came together during an evening of many collaborations at the Manchester vs Cancer charity event, organised by Rourke. The bash triumphantly hosted the cream of the city's talent for the benefit of pioneering cancer hospital, Christies.

A packed MEN Arena witnessed Marr, appearing with his band The Healers, begin his set with a storming version of The Smiths' classic 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out'. He then invited Rourke onstage, stating, "I first played with this guy at school in 1978 and we last played together in 1987. We've done some good things and some not so good things, but it's been too long really and now is a good a time as ever." To the absolute delight of the crowd, the pair then launched into another Smiths favourite, 'How Soon Is Now?'.

However, after one song together, Marr reverted back to The Healers' new material, but not before embracing Rourke as the bassist left the stage.

After short, sharp sets from Nine Black Alps, Stephen Fretwell and Elbow, Rourke reappeared to play with Badly Drawn Boy on 'Everybody's Stalking'.

Doves were the most accommodating band of the night, allowing for a host of star players to join them. Collaborating with Badly Drawn Boy on 'Disillusion', Marr and New Order's Bernard Sumner then arrived for a slightly chaotic version of Lou Reed's 'Vicious'. Sumner, clearly moved by the occasion, declared his appreciation to the crowd with characteristic modesty saying, "I'm not turning into Bob Geldof. Don't worry, I'm still a twat."

Completing the once-in-a-lifetime nature of the night, New Order played a set entirely of Joy Division songs. Bass player Peter Hook told the adoring masses that it was, "time to tear the fuckin' house down". Set highlights included 'Transmission', 'Warsaw' and 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'.

The finale involved the full cast of characters on stage to play out with Happy Mondays' 'Wrote For Luck', with vocal duties delivered by Shaun Ryder.

Kevin Cummins 

Arca


A portfolio of 11 Gelatin-silver prints

Paper size: 20" x 16"

Each in an edition of 75, 10AP’s

signed and numbered by Kevin Cummins

Published by Paul Stolper

Paul Stolper is pleased to announce the launch of a portfolio of 11 photographs of Joy Division and Ian Curtis by Kevin Cummins. This group will be exhibited at the Paul Stolper gallery from 9 February to 11 March 2006. Never before has this most iconic set of images been collated and exhibited together. Both Joy Division’s music and Kevin Cummins photographs captured a particular moment in English culture; the transition from Punk to Indie. Today they have assumed such status that the images are cited and referenced in art, fashion and graphics.

Whilst the music was the most important part of Joy Division’s oeuvre, Kevin Cummins’ photographs were integral to our visual perception of the band. Shot in monochrome, exactly as they would be used in the music press, the photographs acted as the visual counterpart to the music. Taken in rehearsal rooms in Little Peter Street, an old Manchester warehouse, or outdoors in Cathedral Yard, they mirror perfectly both the intensity and intimacy of Joy Division’s unique sound. They are beautiful haunting images of a hopeful young band. There is a striking poignancy to them when we look at them now, knowing how subsequent events unfolded, with the tragic suicide of singer Ian Curtis on the eve of the band’s first American tour.

The photographs document Manchester the city as much as they do Joy Division, and as with all great photographs they reveal as much about the protagonists as they do their setting.  As an urban background,  Manchester was intrinsically linked to the group, and fed into the group’s music.  Visually the cold snow covered streets, empty motorways, and dark barren warehouses, so perfectly captured by Kevin, find echoes in their music.  Where groups like the Sex Pistols, and for that matter the corporate music industry as a whole was so strongly linked to London, Joy Division and Manchester are forever locked together in Kevin Cummins stunning works.
