A whole raft of supporting events is scheduled to coincide with the Peter Saville Show's stint at Urbis in Manchester from 23 January and to 18 April 2004...

Made In Manchester - a series of design masterclasses with Trevor Johnson (Via Communications, ex-Johnson/Panas) and David Crow (Head of School of Design, Manchester Metropolitan University).

An Evening With Peter Saville (7.30-9pm, Wednesday/Thursday 24/25 March 2004) is a kind of reprise of the The Peter Saville Talkon 2 Sept 2003 from the London show: "On two exclusive dates you will have a chance to hear what inspires and motivates a design legend, as Saville discusses his work with Factory records to the state of graphic design today. The evening will be an informal discussion, based on conversation and questions from the audience. Tickets priced £10 and concessions £7.50

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.
