There is a selection of free Kevin Hewick mp3's available at Amazon.com - including 3 totally exclusive new tracks. These represent the first new material available anywhere for years.

'Bad Samantha' and 'Quarterhearted' are both brand new songs recorded at home by Kevin himself on his new-ish little digital recorder. 'Deservation' is a track recorded a year or so ago for the still-unreleased 'Doomcloud' album. There are also a few tracks from 'Helpline', Kevin's last new album, which is now incredibly rare.

Don't forget that you can find all the latest KH news, gigs, on the message board at kevinhewick.com

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.
