The Durutti Column Kooky Reissues 
A Paean To Wilson - The Durutti Column

Thanks to Phil Kooky (no him neither) for the news that The Durutti Column's two albums titles 'A Paean to Wilson' and 'Vini Reilly' will be re-issued in jewel cases towards the end of 2013.

The releases will be identical to the original (out-of-stock) digi-packs with the same artwork, tracklistings, etc but they will be available at a lower price in the Kooky Shop from November.

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.
