Generating Steam Heat radio show 29.09.15 (Peter Hooks 'Unknown Pleasures' Joy Division bio special)

This week, Edx presented a themed special with guest Keith ('old, wiser, punker than you') Jones featuring bands mentioned by Peter Hook in his excellent bio 'Unknown Pleasures' that either influenced or shared a stage with Joy Division.

Keith was going to gigs and playing in bands throughout the punk and post punk era and talked first hand about many of the bands featured in 'Unknown Pleasures' including seeing the Sex Pistols in 1976, being inspired like Peter Hook by the Stranglers JJ Burnell and much more besides.
