The Complete Stone Roses v Joy Division - for charity 
From HookySpace:

"The tribute band The Complete Stone Roses will be releasing a double a-side single for charity Cancer Research UK early next year, the two tracks will be the band's song 'Tell Me Moses' which was written by the tour manager, using only titles from the Stone Roses catalogue. The second track will be a Stone Roses-style version of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' which both the band members from New Order & their publishers Universal Music Publishing have agreed to donate all royalties made from this version, also to the charity. And if that wasn't enough, Hooky is also producing and guest appearing on the single itself.

As part of the promotions for it they will be shooting a music video to accompany the release and are on the lookout for concert audience members to participate in the filming.

The shoot will happen in a city centre music venue in Glasgow on the afternoon of Saturday 8 December 2007. We cannot pay people for this as it's for charity and we need to keep costs to an absolute min however, we will supply refreshments along with a free ticket/guest list space to the Carling Academy show,later that night (all profit from this show to go to Cancer Research UK also) seeing as you will have done your bit for charity.

Any interested individuals should either reply to this post or send an email in the first instance to the bands management at office@stoneroses.net (or press the "contact" tab on he left hand side of the home page at www.stoneroses.net) Detailing your age, your location and of course, your contact email address. We will then get back to you with further details on this project.

We need around 150 people to take part so if you are interested then get back to us ASAP."

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.
