Rambo and Leroy 
Our mate Colin at Vinyl Revival (the one true record shop in Manchester) is planning to release a single by Macclesfield's Rambo and Leroy.

Colin says, "Matt and Jake from the band are currently working with Bernard and Steve on the Bad Lieutenant project and they gave me a sneak preview the other week. Sounds interesting. Not as much Electronic as I thought and a lot less New Order without the bass."

Bernard has also agreed to feature on the second Rambo and Leroy release which will be released around May/June time. The releases come out under the Vinyl Revival label name, with the first single being released on 25 February 2008.

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.
