PreOrder:PreTroxy live @ The George 10 Dec 
New Order return to the UK on Saturday for their first gig in the UK since 2006, and anyone in the vicinity of the gig in the late afternoon should think about going along to a charity event organised by New Order tribute act Re:Order.

The Pre:Order event takes place at The George Tavern, 373 Commercial Road, just 600 yards down the road from the Troxy. The charity in question is the Special Care Baby Unit at Chase Farm Hospital and the event kicks off at 5pm and will be finished in time for everyone to catch New Order's support act, Jake Evans.

More info: Facebook, Re:Order website and The George Tavern.

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.
