Peter Hook calls Bernard Sumner "twatto", claims that he stole New Order

Peter Hook‘s quest to become pop music’s biggest bastard has been quieter than usual this last six months, but the former New Order man’s broken his silence in a new interview.

Speaking to Gigwise, Hook claimed that Bernand Sumner has “stolen” New Order off him, after Sumner couldn’t hack touring smaller venues with his band Bad Lieutenant. “I do think this is what spurred Bernard into getting New Order back – is that he toured with Bad Lieutenant and couldn’t stand the shitholes”, Hook claimed. “I will bet you a pound to a thousand that that’s what it was. He must have been sat there, thinking ‘I can’t be doing with this – I’m stealing New Order off that bastard!'”

It gets better: “It’s really nice to be able to do what I’m doing without having to compromise with another musician”, Hook continues. “Now twatto has gone back to New Order and their greatest hits, so he must be having to compromise.”
