FAC / Manchester night in Malmo, Sweden 
The international appeal of Factory Records and Manchester music:

Anyone living in Malmo, Sweden, or in the vicinity, e.g. Copenhagen and Lund, should definitely check out the indie venue Panora on Saturday 19 November. The club is called Decades and they will try to capture the Manchester / Factory sound from the early 80s (and a couple of years in the late 70s), via the early 90s Madchester to present time with bands like Interpol, Editors and Kasabian.

Previous Manchester-themed nights have included Hallelujah.

Check out www.panora.nu for more 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.
