Sunday 16th May to Wednesday 19th May 12 Noon to 6pm Daily
An exhibition showcasing Joy Divison memorabilia collated by Peter Hook and Chris Hewitt . Over the years as much musical and recording equipment and instruments associated with Joy Divison have been collated by Chris and Hooky and as an avid collector, Hooky will also be showing many paper artefacts and other related objects to Joy Division publicly for the first time.
The Ian Cutis/Joy Division exhibition at The Factory’s top floor boardroom will contain at least six display cases full of Peter Hook’s collection of Joy Division artefacts. There will be a scene of the Joy Division rehearsal room wih instruments and amplification that the band used on gigs and in rehearsals whilst the Joy Division recording session scene will recreate an Ian Curtis vocal take including the actual studio screens he recorded his vocals behind as well as a collection of producer Martin Hannett’s original equipment including the microphone configuration that Martin Hannett used, Martin Hannett’s legendary collection of outboard delay equipment that defined the Joy Division Sound, Hannett’s own tape recorder and several of his early echo units.
This will be a unique insight into the artefacts, instruments, amplification and recording equipment of one of Manchester’s seminal bands.
