Peter Hook, the former Joy Division and New Order has covered The Fall‘s ‘Totally Wired’ in tribute to the late Mark E. Smith.

Hook, who was in session with his band The Light for Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music, paid tribute to the Fall frontman who sadly passed away in January at the age of 60. 

“I just wanted to dedicate this last song to Mark E Smith,” said Hook. “He was absolutely unique at what he did. We banged heads many times, but I had great admiration for him. I had great respect for him as a musician.”

Hooky continued: “He was so hard-working. He believed completely in what he did. He was a true punk. He didn’t care what anybody else thought and I think he’s going to be very, very sadly missed.”
