Soundtrack Of My Life: Peter Hook

Kenny Rogers – ‘Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town’. “The first song that made an impression on me was quite odd, because I stole a record before I had a record player. I had to buy one second-hand off me mate, and I’m sure he ripped me off because I paid 11 quid for it in 1971. I was so desperate to listen to this record I’d stolen. When I actually put it on, it was ‘Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town’ by Kenny Rogers. I’ve had a soft spot for that track ever since. Of course, because it was my first and only record I played it over and over again. I feel guilty about stealing it even now. If the shop was still there I’d go in and give them the sixpence.”
