LTM's Factory back catalogue on iTunes 
This isn't new news but following on from the post about Quando Quango downloads, not only is the entire Quando Quango LTM back catalogue available in the iTunes Store (at least in the US) but also a wide range of (ex-) Fac artists can be found there too including The Wake, The Names, Thick Pigeon, Section 25, Stockholm Monsters, Revenge, Anna Domino, Kalima and Crispy Ambulance. Still waiting on Cath Carroll and recent catalogue additions A Certain Ratio.

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.
