Shall We Take A Trip #1 
From Northside on Facebook:

"Top band, top tune... from those opening lines you know your getting something special with this song!

Lets push for this group to get f*cking massive in the hope that word will spread - on the week commencing 30th June 2008 we need to get as many people to download this song from iTunes and get it into the UK #1 slot!!

Lets face it, in an era when such crap as Duffy, Estelle and Basshunter have been able to claim the #1 slot, we should be able to get this one in there somewhere... just imagine how proud you'll all be putting this classic back up where it belongs and dislodging some of the current chart/pop guff in the process. all for the tidy price of 79p!

Go to it kids, the destiny of this top, top tune is in your hands, dont waste it!"

Good luck lads!

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.
