Young Offenders Institute - new tracks on MySpace 
From the Young Offenders Institute newsletter:

"The band have just finished the fourth and final date of their mini tour, in Stoke. All four dates went really well apart from getting stranded on the way back from Bristol and JP having to walk home from Bolton. Look out for more dates in July.

Next comes the single. We've put two tracks from it up on www.myspace.com/youngoffendersinstitute - 'Skin Up For The Acid Man' and 'Mancunian Psycho'. Let us know what you think in the new YOI Forum at which is just getting started.

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.
