C'est Nuits Sonores @ Les Subsistances 
Bienvenue a Cerysmatic Factory en francais (ou peut-etre franglais) en direct du festival Nuits Sonores a Lyon, en France! Hier soir c'etait l'exhibition du collectif Central Station Design @ Les Subsistances (8 bis, quai Saint-Vincent). On peut voyer les grandes images de 'Hello Playmates' (Bob Monkhouse, Ken Dodd, Barbara Windsor, Arthur Askey et Kenneth Williams), et aussi les posters et les pochettes de disques pour James, Happy Mondays, Black Grape, Northside. Il y avait un petit cinema avec une projection des titres du filme '24 Hour Party People'.

Aujourd'hui c'est 'Meeting Tony Wilson' a la Bibliotheque de la Part-Dieu.

Excusez-moi pour le ponctuation, mais les accents ne marches pas dans Blogger.

Salut Cecile et tous @ Arty Farty, Adrien (Disco Mobile), Alexandre, Matt et famille!

A demain!

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.
