Minny Pops live transmissions 2015 Pt 2

Minny Pops leader Wally van Middendorp confides:

"I went away: it was neither a holiday nor a vacation. I waited for delayed trains, leaving my station late. I wanted to visit my parents and ended up stranded in the town where I was born. I reconnected with some old friends; I did not remember their names or the names of their wives and children. I got lost but managed to return and arrived seven days ago at Liverpool Street Station. At 6.48am, to be precise.

I did not quite know what to do. I have been thinking, thinking, thinking about my next steps. Move sideways, forwards but never backwards. I am still struggling with the concept of time, but I have managed to get a better grip on it since I started wearing a watch. And I no longer want to waste any precious time, time.

I am looking at my diary and see that I need to get ready; ready to get on to a stage, ready to perform, ready to enjoy myself. I will go out there to entertain you; I will go out there to embrace you."

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.
