FAC 51 T-Shirt competition results 
We asked you "What were the four ingredients of a 'Zero Hour' cocktail, as served in the Gay Traitor Bar?"

The answer (which smart FAC 51 fans would have found on the Gay Traitor page sandwiched between a Killer Zombie and Death in the Afternoon) is Brandy, Apricot Brandy, Creme de Menthe and Pernod.

And the envelope please...

The winner (who will receive a complete set of brand new limited edition FAC 51 The Haçienda official t-shirts in the size of their choice) is Dave Stephenson. Congratulations to Dave. We'll be in touch. Thanks too to everyone who entered the competition.

Official, limited and available FAC 51 T-Shirts are also available to buy from Slipstream Stores' online Hacienda shop. They're better than a meat pie.

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.
