21st Century Music 
Mark Reeder (ex-Shark Vegas) tells Cerysmatic has written a new track with Bernard Sumner. Mark says "It's too early days yet to see what will eventually happen with it and it doesn't even have lyrics or a title yet".

Mark has also produced the latest Fidelity Kastrow track '21st Century Girl' which can be heard on myspace.com/fidelitykastrowmusic. This was chosen to be the anthem of this year's Summer of Love festival in the Czech Republic (where she is also performing on 16 August 2008.

Finally, and perhaps most tantalisingly, there's the remix that Mark has just finished for the new Pet Shop Boys / Sam Taylor-Wood single 'I'm In Love With A German Filmstar' (a cover of the old 80s hit by The Passions). The single will be released on CD and MP3 on the German Kompakt label in October to coincide with Sam Taylor-Wood's new exhibition at the White Cube gallery in London which opens on 22 October 2008.

Thanks to Mark. Keep it cool over there in Berlin.

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.
