Hot stuff 
LTM are ringing in the New Year in style with two new releases: LTMCD 2381 Miranda Dali by Thick Pigeon and LTMCD 2364 So Hot by Swamp Children (formerly available as Fact 70). The latter comes with all new groovy artwork and includes extra tracks taken from the Fac 49 'Little Voices' 12" single. These releases are not yet in the shops yet, but are available from LTM direct (where Visa payments are now accepted).

Also, LTM will have the Revenge double CD - LTMCD 2375 One True Passion V2.0 - in stock on or about 12 January.

Later in the year, amongst other delights, watch out for a re-release of the Fact 165 Anna Domino album by Anna Domino, Crispy Ambulance's The Powder Blind Dream, The Royal Family and the Poor's Nocturnes, and a sequel to LTMCD 2377 Cool As Ice - The Be Music Productions called 'Twice As Nice'.

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.
