Stephen Morris has had a distinguished career, spanning nearly 40 years, as a pivotal member of Joy Division and New Order with his trademark machine-like drumming. After the death of Joy Division's singer, Ian Curtis, in 1980, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Morris and his wife Gillian formed New Order, one of the most critically acclaimed and influential bands of the late 20th century. New Order became the flagship band for Tony Wilson's Factory Records and, alongside him, opened the infamous Hacienda nightclub, the centre of the acid house movement. In 2015, after a ten-year hiatus, New Order released Music Complete ; which charted at `2 in its first week of release (the band's highest position in over twenty years). Part memoir, part visual scrapbook, part aural history, this is a hybrid memoir in Stephen's wry and witty voice.
