New Order Too 
Bernard says: "We've all been shouting at each other - now we're just arguing about who has custody of the children" on Yahoo News, before going on to reveal "I'm working on some stuff at the moment. Steve is gonna be involved with it, and it's a project called Bad Lieutenant."

Peter says: "If they want to form a New Order 2 then that’s what it should be viewed as" on Gigwise, before going on to reveal that Freebase - his collaboration with Mani and Andy Rourke - have already recorded vocals by Charlatan Tim Burgess, and plan further work with Ian Brown, Pete Wiley, Ian McCulloch, Liam Gallagher and Howard Marks!

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.
