Playing Hooky @ Return to New York, Toronto 
Mike Doherty talks to Peter Hook for www.eye.net just ahead of Return to New York tonight in Toronto:

"I like the edginess of it," he says of DJing, "that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Reading the crowd -- sometimes it's very, very lonely up there because you've not got your guitar to hide behind. Fucking hell, it does get a bit traumatic."

Friday 6 May
Return to New York
The Mod Club Theatre
722 College

Hooky also talks extensively about his bass playing in the current issue of the imaginatively titled Bass Player magazine (the one with the scary-looking airbrushed cover).


Thanks to Paul and C.

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.
