Reviews

`Rock writing rarely tells us properly what a band treading water or in slow decline feels like from the inside. Hook does so memorably.' * Guardian *
`The 768 pages will delight both New Order-ites and general rock readers, revealing the astonishing human bathos behind this group's godly future-rock [...] The way Joy Division and New Order combined high art with base behaviour is well established but this book rides that tandem to new dimensions [...] there's much more than carnage' * Mojo *
`Set against a lurid backdrop of orgiastic tours, awash with drink, drugs, and a debauched retinue of dealers, hookers and mad roadies, Hook drawing from a seemingly bottomless well of outrageous anecdotes, many of them hilarious and told with the same droll voice that delighted readers of The Hacienda: How Not to Run a Club' * Uncut *
`Epic rock tale of sex, drugs and jealousy ... A must for fans, it's wildly funny and revelatory' * The Sun *
`A rollicking read' * Record Collector *
`You don't have to be an ardent fan of Manchester music to enjoy this doorstopper ... engrossing'

* Cheshire Life *
`Substance chronicling the original four-piece's history is as mammoth and downright idiotic as the band deserves ... something hilariously daft happens on nearly all of Substance's 750 pages' * Classic Pop *
