Peter Hook will

‘Unknown Pleasures’.

In a post on Hook’s Peter Hook & The Light Facebook page,
it was announced that the group’s bassist would mark the
milestone by taking part in Tim Burgess’ Tim’s
Twitter Listening Party series. “Next Saturday, on July 18th at
10pm UK time, Hooky will be hosting a Twitter listening party for
Joy Division’s ‘Closer’ – exactly 40 years on since the
release of the album,” the post read.

“To get involved, all you have to do is play the album at home
from 10pm and follow along with Hooky’s tweets in
real-time.”

Burgess began his Twitter listening parties
as the coronavirus
pandemic sent countries including the UK into lockdown. So far,
bands including The
Cribs
, The
Vaccines
, Shame,
Wolf Alice,
Faithless, Mystery Jets, Chvrches, and Supergrass have taken part
in the sessions.

In May,
Hook marked the 40th anniversary of his Joy Division bandmate Ian
Curtis’ death by streaming a gig
where The Light played every
song released by the band.

He also reflected on Curtis’ death, saying: “Suicide of a
very close friend or family member always leaves you with the
guilt.†He added that he felt “really annoyed with Ian when he
diedâ€, but added that he later realised what “the most
important thing†was about his death.

“The most important thing was a daughter lost her father.
Parents lost a son. A wife lost a husband. A lover lost a lover.
That is really the important thing — because let’s face it,
there’s lots of groups. There’ll be another along in a
minute.â€
