Synopsis (From Bantam Press)

‘Los Angeles produced the Beach Boys. Dusseldorf produced Kraftwerk. Manchester produced Joy Division.’

Founding member and guitarist of Joy Division and the lead singer of New Order, Bernard Sumner has been famous over the years for his reticence. Until now… An integral part of the Manchester music scene since the late 1970s, his is the definitive version of the events that created two of the most influential bands of all time.

Chapter and Verse includes a vivid and illuminating account of Bernard’s Salford childhood, the early days of Joy Division, the band’s enormous critical and popular success, and the subsequent tragic death of Ian Curtis. Bernard describes the formation of New Order, takes us behind the scenes at the birth of classics such as ‘Blue Monday’ and gives his first-hand account of the ecstasy and the agony of the Haçienda days.

Sometimes moving, often hilarious and occasionally completely out of control, this is a tale populated by some of the most colourful and creative characters in music history, such as Ian Curtis, Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton and Martin Hannett. Others have told parts of the story, in film and book form. Now, for the first time, Bernard Sumner gives you chapter and verse.

How Peter Hook got involved in the Nova Nova track…

In 2002, Malcolm McLaren had been living in Paris for several years when he met and hired Thierry Criscione as the producer of his new album. Malcolm McLaren got in touch with his old friend Tony Wilson, as he wished to use the lead vocals from Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ in a new track called ‘Love Will’. Thierry Criscione then asked his friend Marc Durif from the French electronica band Nova Nova to finalize the track’s production.  Upon completion, Tony Wilson gave a copy to Peter Hook.

A few years later, Marc Durif heard that Peter Hook had been including the track in his own DJ sets, Marc then sent Peter Hook an acoustic piano arrangement of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ he had done using the full Ian Curtis acappella.

Marc having composed a new song, Peter Hook agreed to play bass on that new track still un-named at the time, but which was to become ‘Low Ends’. Marc Durif then called up Thierry Criscione and Slabb from Relax Beat to work with him on the original production and on remixes.

Many thanks to Alexandre Escolier for the information.
