After Closer Competition Result 
The lucky winner of the Peter Saville / @seditionart After Closer (Digital Edition) competition is Steve Johnson who correctly identified (along with many others) that the New York City building that inspired Saville's designs for Joy Division's Closer sleeve was the AT&T building (now the Sony Building).

After Closer [Digital Edition] by Peter Saville is presented by s[edition] which specialises in bringing digital limited edition artworks by the world’s leading artists to mobile phones, iPads, computers and television screens.

This piece, which was and originally was conceived as a limited edition screen print in 2011 for the V&A's Postmodernism exhibition, references Joy Division's transition to New Order.

This digital version is presented in a limited edition of 1,000 copies and is available direct from s[edition]. It is presented as a full HD 1080p video lasting 3 minutes and a high-resolution (1919x1080px) still image.

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.
