Kid Robot's MUNNY auction featuring Ed Templeton 
Kid Robot (urban action figure toy store in Greenwich Village and San Francisco) has a charity auction going on right now with their in-house MUNNY figure being customized by various designers and celebrities (Designers Republic, Pharell, Nick Rhodes, etc).

One of the designers is Ed Templeton of Factory Too. There's just over 3 days to run on his auction and the price was at just over 100 USD at the time of posting.

Ed designed the sleeves for Hopper and the FAC 2.24 1996 Factory Too Christmas Card.


Thanks to Mike for spotting.

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.
