For Sale: Vini Reilly's Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Signature Model guitar 
Vini Reilly has decided to sell his Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Signature Model guitar.

Its colour is 'Pageburst' which is a beautiful subtle caramel sunburst, with 'burstbucker' pick-ups specially designed by Gibson in conjunction with Jimmy Page himself.

All hardware is gold-plated as standard and the guitar comes with a scratchplate signed by Jimmy Page as well as a certificate and the original hard case.

Its condition is immaculate with only minimal signs of use as Vini is pretty meticulous with his instruments and it is supplied with the original Gibson hard case. This guitar has been used on the last three albums by The Durutti Column as well as live work and sessions for various Radio commitments.

New, these guitars list at GBP 5000 and they were not a mass-produced Les Paul model. Vini will consider any offers around GBP 3,750. Additionally he will meet the buyer in person for lunch in Manchester when collecting.

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.
