A Lilypad Sampler to celebrate Record Store Day 
From the Lilypad Records blog in honour of Record Store Day:

PADCAST #10: RECORD STORE DAY - A Lilypad Sampler With Cath Carroll Part 1

Lilypad's Atomic Theory of the Record Store

"Join us as we listen to a variety of songs from Lilypad's friends and family, and Cath rambles on about counter terror at old record shops of the North. We establish Lilypad's Atomic Theory of The Record Store (with thanks to Flann O’Brien), in order to justify why an online indie label is gate crashing this bricks & mortar event. We are Record Store. The Padcast intro features 'Dag Juhlin Symphony Extravaganza', a tribute to the Man of a Thousand Bands, performed by the UK's Monty."

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.
