New Order

Dave Rimmer, Q, January 1988

"WE GOT a letter last week," Peter Hook, the bearded and occasionally belligerent bass player, the one who answers all New Order fan mail, is saying, "from this girl, from Walsall or somewhere like that. She said: why are you always mentioned in the same breath as Joy Division? She didn't remember any of it. She didn't know who we were."
