Joy Division and New Order drummer Stephen Morris’s musical memoir 'Record Play Pause' recounts with deadpan wit his incredible career, taking a frank and profound look at the mythology of these iconic bands and music’s power to define who we are. A coming-of-age story with plenty of anecdotes and memories. Stephen Morris has been behind some of the most recognizable drumbeats in modern music. Part memoir, part aural history, his latest book reflects on growing up in north-west England during the 1970s and the impact that Joy Division has had from the late 1970s to the present day, taking in the brilliance of the music, lyrics and post-punk tension. Hosting the event is music journalist and author William Shaw.
