The Sex Education of Stephen Morris 
News comes in that New Order drummer Stephen Morris has been collaborating with Liverpool up-and-comers Sex Education on their forthcoming debut LP, which is being produced by Roger Lyons (of the much-missed Lionrock).

Sex Education's Chris Ward explains to Cerysmatic: "When we first started recording a track called 'Regret It All' we wanted live drums on it but didn't have a drummer at the time (we do now!). Roger suggested Steve, who he knows from doing live sound and collaborations with New Order over the years. Steve has kindly done some awesome live drumming on the track, as well as a few extra loops and surprises."

Check Sex Education out here. The band also have live dates coming up including Night & Day in Manchester on 28 October, and a free show at Korova in Liverpool 3 November.

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.
