New Order to release new material as Joy Division for 'Control' movie 
According to BBC 6Music, New Order are set to record new material for the soundtrack to the movie 'Control' as ... Joy Division. Talking to the NME, Hooky has said that "We were asked to do the soundtrack to the film, which I thought was a fooking great idea - for Joy Division to do the music for a Joy Division film - because we've never really done a soundtrack before."

The film itself is still apparently on course, despite casting being repeatedly bumped backwards (now set for Spring 2006) and even director Anton Corbijn casting doubts over whether it will get made (in an interview with suicidegirls.com).

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.
