Lot 42 in the Peter Hook – New Order Collection auction, 8th October 2021.
Peter Hook: “A monumental gig, what a line-up. Tony Wilson was very impressed with Derek Hatton’s politics and was adamant we must support this new wave of politicians. He was like a better dressed Andy Burnham. We did it for expenses… £63, so did the Smiths… £663. The Fall demanded a fee as well… £1663. Good old Mark! He was right too, though, Derek would bow out soon after to become a radio presenter.”
