New Order's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live 
In the week that their new album 'Waiting For The Sirens' Call' was released in the USA, New Order put in a good performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC TV broadcast across the USA and Canada last night at 12:05am. They performed 'Krafty' and then the program went to commercial. When they came back Bernard said "I'd like to do this for Ian Curtis our singer of Joy Division who died 25 years ago this year, this is Love Will Tear Us Apart."

Thanks to Paul for info.

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.
