OMD Architecture and Morality Tour postponed 

From omd.uk.com:

"Due to unforseen circumstances, the planned Autumn Architecture & Morality gigs have been put back to next year. Apologies to all those that have eagerly waited to attend, but the rescheduled dates will now take place early in 2007. More details on dates and venues will be posted up in due course.

Meanwhile, the band will be rehearsing again in the Summer for the 2007 shows.

Andy (McCluskey)"

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.
