35 Years On – So This Is Permanence…

Peter Hook & The Light return to Christ Church, Macclesfield on May 18th 2015 to perform the complete works of Joy Division. Hooky and The Light will play every single track ever written and recorded by the band at this singular concert at the beautiful 18th Century place of worship in the centre of the town where the group was founded.

As respect for and devotion to Joy Division’s contribution to music history endures locally and internationally some three and a half decades since the band ended, the live debut of the full repertoire is bound to be a hugely emotive occasion.

“So This Is Permanence” takes its name from the lyrics of “Twenty Four Hours”, an album track from the second side of ”Closer”, another classic by the band which has worked its way into popular consciousness along with the likes of ’Isolation’, ‘Disorder’, ‘Digital’ ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, ‘Transmission’,  ‘Atmosphere’ and many others.

Both the venue and the town hold great resonance for the event as Joy Division used to rehearse regularly at the nearby Talbot Pub in Macclesfield, although they never actually performed live in the town. As is well known, Macclesfield is the hometown of both  Ian Curtis & Stephen Morris and in another coincidence, Christ Church was attended by Ian in his youth.

The first time Joy Division’s music came to be performed live in Macclesfield took place in June 2013 at the Barnaby Festival when The Light were invited to perform “Unknown Pleasures” and “Closer” live. This intimate one-off concert, with the same 500 capacity as “So This Is Permanence” sold out quickly as fans of the band came from all over the world for the event.

“So This Is Permanence” forms another of The Light’s special event gigs and as the show takes place on such a significant date, it is set to attract a similar audience of the band’s fans to Macclesfield in mid May.

May 18th 2015 also marks five years precisely since Peter Hook & The Light debuted their “Unknown Pleasures” live set which began their musical odyssey through the Joy Division and New Order back catalogues.

Christ Church, an 18th Century church in central Macclesfield, is a unique grade two star listed building which had previously lay dormant for 30 years before being revived for The Barnaby Festival. The town’s Roe-Naissance Project are currently reviewing how it can be brought back to life as a functioning arts venue.

“So This Permanence” is being produced by Peter Hook, Wigwam, Eventim, DBN Lighting, and GF Smith Paper alongside Made In Macclesfield and Winterfest. The event is also supported by the Barnaby Festival and The Churches Conservation Trust who administer Christ Church.

All proceeds from “So This Is Permanence” are to be donated to The Epilepsy Society and The Churches Conservation Trust with the donation to the CCT earmarked for the redevelopment of Christ Church.


New Order – Kevin Cummins Book out Now!

no kc book

A definitive collection of photographs of the legendary and influential band New Order. New Order remains one of the most popular bands of the last half century. Founded in the dying years of punk and disco, and combining elements of post-punk, new wave, and electronic dance music, New Order was responsible for some of the biggest hits of the era and is one of few bands to have achieved mainstream success while retaining cult status. Having been the most trusted photographer of Joy Division in the 1970s, Kevin Cummins was uniquely placed to document the rise and fall of New Order, from their formation in 1980 to their split in 1993. From underground beginnings as the flagship group of Factory Records in Manchester to grandstand tours around Europe and America, Cummins captured the band in every light, from the intimacy of the studio to the frenetic energy of live performance. Collected here for the first time are more than a hundred photographs reflecting over a decade of New Order. Prefaced by a selection of rarely seen ephemera, conversations with the band members, and an introduction from Douglas Coupland, this is a stunning celebration of a band whose influence on music and fashion is still palpable today.
