Went to see the new Grant Gee documentary in Belfast last night.

 

Was excellent. Very moving, some good interviews and some stunning footage - including a sound clip of Barney Sumner hypnotising Ian Curtis! Think there was a scene of this event in the Control movie?

 

Grant Gee did a Q & A afterwards. Menioned that the relationship between Sumner and Peter Hook was "not very good at the moment".

Not surprising, seeing as Hooky announced New Order had split up again without bothering to mention it to the rest of the band.

Yeah, remember that now. He said they'd split up, then rest said they hadn't but he could leave if he wanted

 

He's quite funny in the new docu

:yes:

 

Sumner was the only one not to attend Wilson's funeral, wasn't he?How much that was to do with not forgiving Wilson and how much was due to wanting to be as far away as possible from Hook these days is anybody's guess.

In the docs I've seen of Factory/Joy Division/New Order, Sumner's always seemed a decent chap, apart from his support for the Mancs.

 

Hook always makes me laugh when he's interviewed, dunno why.
