True Faith @ Nelson's, Hebden Bridge 8 June 
True Faith @ Nelson's, Hebden Bridge 8 June

"Turn it up! Bin the headphones for a night and share the music, and love. We're going to play all those great songs from back when we had daft sticky-up hair and acted all moody in great-coats, even in mid-summer. You know - The Smiths, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, New Order, the whole lot of 'em.

"We're starting off at Nelson's, a cool underground bar in Hebden Bridge, on Saturday 8 June, from 9pm. Come along with your pals and lose yourself to the soundtrack of your old self when all was hopeful and dreamy and lovely with the world.

"We'll be playing some new stuff, of course, because hopes and dreams and loveliness and great music is eternal what ever the age, the hairstyle and where ever you're now at, man. Have faith, True Faith."

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.
