Legendary Joy Division bassist, Peter Hook is to hold an exhibition and auction of his wide ranging and historic collection of Joy Division and Factory Records memorabilia which as one of the most avid collectors he has put together over his four decades in music.
The “Peter Hook Signature Collection” features many rare items from Hooky’s first band Joy Division as well from Factory Records including equipment, instruments, Hooky’s own guitar, rare vinyl, unique artwork and original posters from the era.
The collection marks the first time these have been brought together for fans to view and is made up of many items, unseen since the ends of both Joy Division and Factory.
The collection also includes artefacts including correspondence and limited edition clothing, much of Hooky’s personal memorabilia including his Free Trade Hall Sex Pistols ticket and, even the infamous original Factory Records table number amongst its near three hundred exhibits and lots.
The event was previewed with a select number of pieces at Record Planet 50th Anniversary Fair in Utrecht, Holland in November where Hooky took part in a Q&A with respected Dutch music journalist, Jan Vollaard.
The full exhibition will take place from 25th February to 2nd March 2019 with all exhibits and lots at Omega Auctions HQ in Newton-Le-Willows before the auction on Saturday 2nd March at 1pm.
