Deeply Vale of the 1970s 5CD box set 
Deeply Vale 2006 may not be happening but despair ye not. Those nice people at Ozit Morpheus Records are working on bringing you a 5CD retrospective set of the classic years of the Seventies at Deeply Vale.

This will feature tracks from as many musicians as possible who played the Festival during that time including some from The Durutti Column who were playing their third live set ever. The featured tracks are 'Halitosis' and 'Boxes'.

The rest of the line-up includes Steve Hillage, The Fall, Wilful Damage, Danny and the Dressmakers (featuring Graham Massey), Fast Cars, The Tunes, The Ruts, and, erm, the joint rolling contest.

The full package is in the process of being finalised but if there are any other musicians who were there or who want to be involved in donating a track or two to this boxed set please contact Ozit Morpheus.

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.
