    Listen Peter Hook covers Captain Beyond’s Dancing Madly Backwards

    Peter Hook has shared new music in the shape of his cover of Captain Beyond’s 70s space rock classic ‘Dancing Madly Backwards’.

    Ministry have also covered the track and the pair will be released together as a double sided 12 inch vinyl which is limited to 300 copies via Cleopatra Records.

    Hooky mentioned the song earlier this year in an interview with Trebuchet when asked whether he’s planning to record any new music. He said:

    “I just done a track with one of Kraftwerk. I’ve also done another track, a cover version (funnily enough) called ‘Dancing Madly Backwards’ by Captain Beyond. It’s a song from the ’70s from a record label in America. It turned out really, really well. The guys phoned me up and said. ‘Fancy doing an LP in that style?’ [laughs]. I do a lot of new music, but I’m pretty shit at letting people know about it.”
