News from Heart & Soul Recordings 
Heart and Soul Recordings is the new label by Martin Moscrop of A Certain Ratio.

Adrian Flanegan, better known as Kings Have Long Arms, is known to the righteous few through a series of brilliant singles, such as 'Pigeons Carry My News' and 'Rock & Roll Is Dead'

The KHLA live show is a whole other beast - an electro-pop carnival, which could well feature a Mexican wrestler in a gimp mask, Sherlock Holmes on the stylophone, a lion playing keyboards, and a massive all-in Adrian Flanegan, a man with a plan conga dance to the outrageous new single 'All Hail Satan'.

Seeing is still not quite believing...

On tour in October

13 - London, Madame Jojo's, Brewer Street, Soho. On Stage 11pm.
14 - Manchester, Bierkeller, Piccadilly, Manchester.
15 - Kings Have Long Arms Soundsystem, Leeds, Joseph Well, Johnny Gogogo event. Doors 8pm.
17 - Kings Have Long Arms Soundsystem, playing records as specially invited guest to Ladytron at their Sheffield Show at Plug. Doors 8pm.

The new single, 'All Hail Satan' gets its official release on 17 October 2005. Out on CD and 7" the EP includes the tracks 'All Hail Satan' (produced by Ross Orton M.I.A / Fat Truckers), 'Redneck in a Loop' (produced by Joe Robinson - Badly Drawn Boy, I Am Kloot, Chicks on Speed), and 'Crackermatic' (Another Ross Orton production - actually 2 tracks - 'Assomatic' and 'Who Stole My Crackerjack Pencil' - skillfully joined together to avoid the 'only 3 tracks qualify as a single' rule!)

This single is Electro fun pop music, but not as you know it, this is Northern Electro at its finest, now ALL HAIL THE KING WITH THE LONG ARMS.

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.
