Wake up London you're dead! 
The Wake have just been confirmed for the final day of the four-day London Popfest 2010 at The Lexington, Islington, London on Sunday 28 February 2010.

The Wake recently broke a long live silence with a stunning set at A Factory Night (And then again) at Plan K in Brussels.

Second-on-the-bill Horse Shoes feature a member of The Drums (who were recently seen taking the stage for an impromptu set at FAC 251 The Factory late on Saturday night). Both The Drums and Horse Shoes cite The Wake as a major influence.

Please note that this is an early show with the doors opening at 3pm.

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.
