Peter Hook Announces Massive Auction of New Order Items
Peter Hook has announced he’ll be auctioning off a huge portion of relics and memorabilia from his time in New Order. The auction, which will be held October 8th via Omega Auctions, will include over four hundred lots of awards, instruments, studio equipment, and more.
“I always knew that this collection would be the most difficult,” Hook shares. “The highs in my forty-one years of New Order’s existence have been incredible alongside the lows. Seeing these wonderful items and remembering the fantastic achievements and wonderful adventures we had all around the world did bring a smile to my face and tear to my eye. I really hope that those interested in the history appreciate and enjoy the collection.”
The collection will also include artifacts related to Factory and Joy Division. While the full list is not yet available, Omega writes that some of the items include an Overwater bass guitar owned by John Entwistle, Hook’s six-string Shergold Marathon, his original Yamaha BB1200S used on most of New Order’s output, his Chris Eccleshall EBO hollow body bass, and the Prophet 5 synth used to record “Blue Monday”.
“In addition, the ‘Peter Hook Private Collection – New Order’ puts on show a vast array of memorabilia related to Hooky and the band from original flight cases, framed gig posters and artwork, limited edition fashion and clothing, as well as tour itineraries, books and assorted other items,” the auction house adds.
The online catalog of all exhibits and lots will be available for pre-bidding starting August 27th. You can order a full signed catalog and get more details through the Omega website.
