ReOrdered #2: NewSpeak 
In typical New Order fashion, an insert in the US version of the Live in Glasgow DVD contradicts Peter Hook's earlier statements about the content of the coming remastered New Order albums, and just which albums are being re-issued.

"Coming Fall 2008, New Order Collector's Editions, Remastered and Expanded in a 2-Disc Set with Non-Album Singles, B-Sides, Remixes, New Liner Notes, and More!" (The covers of Power Corruption & Lies, Low-Life, Brotherhood and Republic are pictured, with "Collector's Edition" tags added to the artwork. [Hmm, where are Movement and Technique? And now Republic pops up.])

Whether this applies to all versions worldwide, or just the US Rhino editions remains to be seen...

Thanks to Chris D for spotting.

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.
