Peter Hook can sing?!

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Fassa Albrecht, Sep 26, 2008.

  1. I was flicking through some old videos on YouTube searching for a Peter Hook clip and I came across a band called Monaco, Hooky's side project.

    He actually sings and sounds half-decent.

    Anyone else heard Monaco??

    Yes. Music for Pleasure is the album you should check out. It's very 90s, but some good New Order-esque songs. Hooky sings on some and David Potts does too, who sounds a lot lik eBernard Sumner, so it's almost like listening to New Order. Good album.

    Hooky also sang 2 songs on New Order's first album, Movement, including Dreams Never Ends, which is a great song.

    Also, Hooky fans will enjoy this, he guests on a track by a Portuguese band called Loto, on this great song:

    I could have sworn that he sang on "dreams never end". He also sang love will tear us apart when I saw them in the 90s.

    Nice! Hook is a definite original.:)
  8. Wow, I never knew he sang "Dreams Never End". One of my favorite New Order songs.
  9. Just saw NEW ORDER live in Glasgow on HDNET I love how in front his bass playing is.
