Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds Documentary


17 February 2005 at King's Arms, Salford.

A unique opportunity to see John Crumpton's previously UNSEEN 1978 documentary about Manchester punk legends, Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds - Vini Reilly's first band. The film includes interviews and concert footage (filmed in steamy punk clubs) as well as a hilarious TV appearance on ' Granada Reports' with Tony Wilson.

CP Lee will give a talk and the film will be introduced by a very special guest...

More details to follow.

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.
