Last year, Hook went into detail about the first time he met Joy Divison’s Ian Curtis at the Electric Circus.

“He was unique and he stuck out, shall we say. I went to his house which was in Stretford. Him and Debbie were living with Ian’s mother or grandmother at that time, they didn’t have their own place then… or they’d just moved in there temporarily,” he told the podcast Transmissions: The Definitive Story.

“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.”
