Peter Hook to reform pointless band for charity

Posted October 19th, 2007 by eric

As though Revenge weren’t embarrassing enough, Joy Division and New Order bass legend Peter Hook went on to create Monaco during New Order’s lengthiest hiatus in the late 1990’s. The band was a rubbish New Order impression at best, cashing in on the aforementioned hiatus with singles that closely mimicked New Order’s hybrid mix of organic and electronic instrumentation. Vocalist/guitarist David Potts even did a passable Bernard Sumner impression, but it was a laughably transparent substitute for the real thing. Hook is regrouping with Potts for a charity event in Manchester later this month.
