Former New Order and Joy Division member Peter Hook played two sold out shows at The Lowry in Salford over the weekend with his band The Light.
The outfit features members of his previous group Monaco with his son, Jack, on bass and Rowetta, from the Happy Mondays, with whom he shares vocal duties.
This follows last week's reports that out-takes from New Order's final album Waiting For The Sirens' Call will be released as an EP in December.
The Lost Sirens EP will include eight tracks that didn't make it onto the band's 2005 record.
There are currently four New Order concerts in the diary next month, including their first UK show in five years on 10 December, but of course Hook won't be joining the reunited line-up.
At the aforementioned shows Hook has been playing with The Light, the band performed Joy Division's second album, Closer, in full.
"I like to think what I do is a bit more arty and bit more edgy because I don't want to get into the tribute band territory."
This comes a year after Hooky and The Light played Joy Division's debut, Unknown Pleasures, in full to mark the 30th anniversary of Ian Curtis's death in February last year.
Speaking about the shows, he said: "I'm very, very careful to give people the experience of hearing it from start to finish.
"I suppose it's one of the odd things with 'New Lieutenant' or 'Bad Order' or whatever they're called, is that they are playing the music of the group in a set and they aren't New Order, they're three ex-members of New Order playing it."
"I like to think what I do is a bit more arty and bit more edgy because I don't want to get into the tribute band territory," he added.
6 Music's Elizabeth Alker spoke to Hooky about these shows, New Order and why playing the Lowry theatre in Salford feels like a special homecoming:
