FAC 318 Classics in Motion T-Shirt 
FAC 318 Classics in Motion T-Shirt

FAC 318 was allocated to the "Classics in Motion" Classical showcase event (featuring I Fagiolini, Rolf Hind, Graham Fitkin, Red Byrd, Steve Martland and The Durutti Column) to launch the second wave of Factory Classical CD releases (FACT 316, 326, 336, 346 and 356) at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London on 29-31 October 1990.

FAC 318 was also issued to a 'Classics in Motion' T-shirt (in grey with black/yellow graphics), a poster and a leaflet; all with related graphics and "FAC 318" on them.

However, in typical Factory fashion, FAC 318 was ALSO later issued to the FAC 318 Flying Start exhibition stand...

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.
