F4 and Durutti working to fix faulty MP3s 
As announced yesterday, the new six-track collection by The Durutti Column entitled 'Heaven Sent (It Was Called Digital. It Was Heaven Sent)' which was specially recorded for F4 Records (and which is excellent by the way) was launched at the F4 Records Download Shop via www.f4records.co.uk. Unfortunately tracks 4-6 had audible and noticeable glitches. The tracks have been temporarily taken down whilst F4 Records and The Durutti Column work together to fix the problem.

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.
