Monaco (Peter Hook Joy Division/New Order)

Music For Pleasure = Expanded: Limited Orange Vinyl 2LP


Release date: 14 June, 2024

Music For Pleasure is the 1997 debut studio album by Mona- co, a side project of New Order bassist Peter Hook. When New Order went on a hiatus after 1993’s Republic, Hook took the group’s sound and spirit with him and founded Monaco to- gether with David Potts. Hook’s distinctive pulsating bass lines united New Order’s marriage of post-punk and pop, creating an identity so recognizable that Monaco’s first single, “What Do You Want From Me?”, was often mistaken for a New Order track. Upon its release, the album hit #11 on the UK album charts and sold more than 500.000 copies worldwide.

Music For Pleasure is for the first time available as an expand- ed edition featuring 6 bonus tracks, including remixes by Joey Negro and Farley & Heller. The 2LP Music For Pleasure (Ex- panded Edition) is available as a limited edition of 1000 copies on orange coloured vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve, and includes a 4-page booklet.
