Getting together remotely with his band — David Potts (vocals/guitar), Jack Bates (bass), Paul Kehoe (drums) and Martin Rebelski (keys) — for the performance, Hook has now released his take on ‘Aries’ on YouTube, which you can see below.
Damon Albarn spoke recently about the possibility of a future ‘Song Machine’ collaboration between Gorillaz and Tame Impala, while also hinting that his cartoon band may link up with Sir Paul McCartney as well.
Hook, meanwhile, recently guested on the first episode of Transmissions: The Definitive Story, a new podcast about Joy Division and New Order.
During his guest appearance, the bassist spoke about his memories of meeting Joy Division’s late frontman Ian Curtis for the first time.
“He was unique and he stuck out, shall we say,” Hook said, before recalling a visit to Curtis’ house at the time in Stretford.
“Ian showed me his PA and said: ‘Hey, have you heard this new Iggy Pop album? It’s just come out this week.’ I’d never heard Iggy Pop before. He played ‘China Girl’ off that album and I thought it’s great, and fell in love with it straight away and I thought… this is the guy.”
