KOOKY10 - advance booking recommended 
A message from Phil Cleaver about the forthcoming special show at The Soundhaus in Northampton to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Kooky Records:

"It is possible that the capacity will only be 200 for the show... Please, if you are thinking of coming - book tickets to ensure you get in. OK, I would say that but it will be at least 2-3 quid cheaper than your average Durutti Show and there will be a free CD - plus Vin will be doing a solo show - don't forget Gnac and The Retro Spankees too..."

So, a strong recommendation to get advance tickets. These are available from the Soundhaus ticket office (the Underground) on 01604 604020. www.soundhaus.com

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.
