Philharmonic Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark 
From the Wirral Globe:

"ORCHESTRAL Manoeuvres In The Dark will share the stage with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra later this year.

"The group's Wirral-born founding members Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys will perform their greatest hits and their music and video installation, The Energy Suite, during the show at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on Saturday, June 20. Conducting the orchestra will be Clark Rundell.

"Looking ahead to the show, Andy told the Globe: “It's a big screen with a 75-piece orchestra and a wonderful opportunity to perform at the Philharmonic Hall.

"Playing with the Liverpool Phil is something that is so far removed from where we started out and it’s a terribly exciting prospect."

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.
