Rodrigo Leão + The Durutti Column @ Barbican 
Hot on the heels of the Ruby Lounge gig announced yesterday, comes another new date for The Durutti Column, this time at The Barbican in London on 6 November 2008 as part of the Autumn Contemporary Events 08 season.

Rodrigo Leão + The Durutti Column
6 November 2008
19:30 GMT
Barbican Hall

Tickets priced 10.00, 15.00 and 20.00 GBP are on sale now.

From Barbican.org: "Rodrigo Leão, co-founder of Madredeus, was hailed by Pedro Almodóvar as 'one of the most inspired composers in the world'. There is a cinematic scale to his work which has attracted collaborators from Ryuichi Sakamoto to Beth Gibbons, and which comes out in his new work O Mundo, in which he and his band draw together much of his greatest music as part of an imagined soundtrack.

Rodrigo Leão's special guests will be The Durutti Column, Vini Reilly's legendary Manchester band playing a very rare London show, linked to the forthcoming 30 Years of Factory Records boxed set."

More on the Factory Records boxed set as and when it transpires.

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.
