Electric Chair's finest heroes and darkest villains come together to create five rooms and eight hours for The Riot. Manchester legends A Certain Ratio drop a rare live appearance, alongside legendary selector Don Letts, former resident at the seminal Roxy club where he introduced Punks to Dreads on the dancefloor. Joining him will be Greg Wilson playing a very special electro set, as Jillys becomes one big block party!

Richard Dorfmeister of K&D fame joins the dots with Gilles Peterson in the Music Box basement, with a late end of night set by the Unabombers. Soundclashes from local stables Aficionado, Eyes Down and Development drop into the pot, alongside live sets from Ben Westbeech and Elektrons.

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.
