“Nothing would’ve stopped us — nothing did stop us, did it?” Bernard Sumner says. “Ian’s death didn’t stop us, Martin’s death didn’t stop us, getting all the equipment stolen didn’t stop us … There was nothing to go back to. There was no plan B.” Peter Hook adds, “To be in one band with such a distinct identity is pretty bloody lucky but then to get into two bands was amazing!”
Tranmissions is produced by Cup & Nuzzle, the team behind Robert Plant’s recent Digging Deep podcast. The first of eight episodes, available 10/22 on your preferred podcast platform, will cover the band’s history from the Joy Division era up until New Order’s iconic 1983 single “Blue Monday.”
