The Adventure Babies: the very very very last gig 
The Adventure Babies are getting the band back together to play live for one last time. The gig is at Stafford Rangers Social Club (in Stafford) on Saturday 25 June and tickets are only two pounds.

According to Redspot.org, "this is to be the very very very last gig the adbabs will ever perform. This combination of Stafford and Manchester based musicians was the last ever band signed to the legendary FACTORY RECORDS. Tony Wilson is reported to have insisted on seeing the band practice in a living room somewhere in town.."

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.
