Your Durutti Column diary for the week ahead 
The Durutti Column will be featured performing 3 live tracks, including one previously unheard on John Kennedy's Xfm show in London and Manchester tomorrow 16 May from 10pm. It will be broadcast in Scotland at a later date.

They play London Dingwalls on Wednesday 17 May in support of new LP 'Keep Breathing' out now on Artful and will then continue touring the UK and Europe.

The band are currently making a dvd for future release. The concert at the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham this Thursday 18 May will be recorded for inclusion in the dvd.

Then, rounding off a busy week quite nicely, Vini Reilly will perform solo guitar on Stuart Maconie's, the Freak Zone on 6 Music next Sunday 21 May.

And if all that wasn't enough, the Durutti Column Sub-Group Newsletter has been published and is on the streets. Honest! It includes plenty of cool stuff including Phil's Sonar Diary and a Q&A with Vini Reilly.

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.
