'The Executioner', the unreleased collaboration between Cabaret Voltaire and Paul Haig which was originally planned for release on Factory Benelux (FBN 47/48) will finally be released via Les Disques du Crépuscule as part of the forthcoming Paul Haig compilation 'At Twilight' (TWI 1154 CD).

The FBN 47/48 (one was the 7", the other the 12") tracks have previously surfaced elsewhere. One mix can be found on Paul Haig's 'European Sun' compilation LP/CD (TWI 829) on Crépuscule or Interphon CD (IPCD 2018-36 1988). Another mix can be found on the cassette version of 'The Quick Neat Job' Crépuscule compilation (TWIC 643).

The 2CD album slated for Winter/Spring 2013/14 will also include Haig's lost 1984 Island album in its entirety.

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.
