OMD - the TV documentary 
From the official OMD website:

"Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys will be returning to their roots next Monday when they visit the site of Eric's Club for a new TV documentary.

OMD are being followed by a TV crew throughout the year for a special programme focusing on OMD. As well as being interviewed and taken to OMD landmarks such as Eric's Club, the TV crew will also be there for the band's first rehearsal performances.

The TV documentary has no planned transmission date as yet but is planed for broadcast on BBC TV in the future."

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.
