Cerysmatic Factory / LTM Competitions for Interesting Things 
And now the results of the recent LTM / Cerysmatic Factory competitions...

On offer were LTMDVD 2391 Shadowplayers, a feature-length documentary tracing the early history of Factory Records between 1978 and 1981. The film was made by director James Nice and features new interviews with Anthony Wilson, Peter Saville, Peter Hook, Section 25, Alan Hempsall, Ann Quigley and many others.

The question was "The Shadowplayers documentary features interviews with two Factory musicians named Vin(i). What are their full names, and the names of their respective bands?"

The answer was Vini Reilly (The Durutti Column) and Vin Cassidy (Section 25). The lucky winner of a copy of the dvd is Dan Maryon.

Also on offer was a copy of LTMCD 2467 'Some of the interesting things you'll see on a long-distance flight', the 76 minute live CD originally released by Les Disques du Crépuscule and including The Durutti Column, Paul Haig with Rhythm of Life, Antena, The Names and Richard Jobson.

The question was "The live souvenir CD 'Some of the interesting things you'll see on a long-distance flight' was recorded on the Crépuscule package tour called Dialogue North-South in February 1982. In October that same year the label arranged a second package tour, this time featuring Pale Fountains, Cabaret Voltaire, 23 Skidoo, Tuxedomoon, Antena and others. What was the name of that second tour?"

The answer was 'Move Back - Bite Harder' and the lucky winner is Marc Berger.

Winners will also be notified by email and will shortly receive their goodies in the post. Thanks to everyone who entered and sorry you couldn't all win.

Both 'Shadowplayers' and 'Some of the interesting things...' are available now direct from LTM.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
