We Were Strangers: Stories Inspired by Unknown Pleasures edited by Richard Hirst.
The short time that falls between the end and start of the Northern bands, Joy Division and New Order, splits the new city region from the old. Joy Division, through Ian Curtis, are connected to the declining areas of de-industrialisation with links to Macclesfield, Oldham, Salford, and Stockport. Their elective affinities are with the industrial music of Can and Neu! It is appropriate that the cover of the anthology by Zoe McClean echoes that of Faust’s monochrome album, “Faust,” by Bridget Riley, as well as “Unknown Pleasures” itself.
The first story is a homage to Joy Division and has amazingly been written by Nick Royle using all the words from the album recreated in a different order to create a coherent moving story.
