The Durutti Column Subscription CD 
A few more details on The Durutti Column subscription service from Phil Kooky with the promise of more payment options in the future:

"1) We still cannot accept Paypal or credit cards or checks except those in UK funds..... I'm sorry but I hope to get this done soon and once the sub-group money comes in it shouldn't be too long coming.

2) Release date will be MAY 2004 sometime..... It will mean the newsletter will follow in the summer to those who subscribe.

3) It will not be a limited release - i.e. we will press to suit demand!

4) The prices in CASH - concealed at your risk are as the previous posting.



Finally, thanks for some great ideas on what to include but please please tell me what you want to know or be included it is good to make it what you want it to be!"

Cheers Phil and thanks for keeping us all updated on what is a very enterprising initiative.

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.
