Hooks out: Peter attacks remnants of New Order

The story so far: Peter Hook told everyone New Order was over. Then Stephen Morris and Barney Sumner said "might be for you, but we're carrying on."

Now, Hook has said 'oh no, you're not':

Addressing Sumner and Morris, Hook wrote on his MySpace page: "This group [New Order] has split up! You are no more New Order than I am! You may have two thirds, but don't assume you have the rights to do anything 'New Order-ey,' because you don't. I've still got a third! But I'm open to negotiation." He signed the statement off by writing, "See you in court!"

Nothing becomes a truly great band like the way they fall apart.
