New Order Star To Write Hacienda Book


24 Hour Party People

New Order bassist PETER HOOK is working on a book chronicling the decadent heyday of iconic Manchester, Northern England, venue The Hacienda.
The club was run by the BLUE MONDAY stars alongside Factory Records pop mogul TONY WILSON - and throughout the 1980s it became a notorious mecca for music fans, as portrayed in 2002 movie 24 Hour Party People.
Hook, whose upcoming work is provisionally titled HOW NOT TO RUN A CLUB, says, "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.
"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. The stories are legion and legendary."
