In a twist on the Peter Saville / +/- plagiarism allegations the band has made the following statement on their Facebook page:

"As far we know, we are not suing them. We're waiting to hear from Mark Robinson at Teenbeat but it would be a shock to find out this way. We're pretty certain that this is just a hoax."

All mentions to this being a hoax, on the band's or the label's Facebook pages, have been removed. Not sure what this means for the "it's a hoax" argument. Either it was a joke that got out of hand, or else they're indeed serious but didn't like the publicity. At any rate, I don't think Saville needs to worry.

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.
