Oakenfold / Happy Mondays Get Loaded 
Paul Oakenfold has just been added to the bill at Get Loaded in the Park. Having produced the Happy Mondays' third album 'Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches' (with studio partner Steve Osbourne), Oakenfold helped carve the band a distinctively dance friendly sound, making the Mondays one of the most important bands of the late 80's / early 90's. Oakenfold also worked on classic tracks like 'Step On', 'Kinky Afro' and 'Loose Fit', and rather fittingly, he'll now be sharing the same stage as old pals Shaun Ryder & Bez, who themselves will be showcasing brand new Happy Mondays material.

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.
