Ed Templeton: Map of the Inner War 
Skateboarding legend (and Factory Too designer) Ed Templeton's latest gallery showing has opened at Roberts & Tilton in Los Angeles. Titled 'Map of the Inner War', it features some 250 new works including painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper. The show runs through 13 December 2008.

If you're not in L.A., SuperTouch has a new wide-ranging in-depth interview with Templeton with a large gallery of his artwork.

But if you are in Madrid, the travelling 'Beautiful Losers' exhibition (including pieces by Templeton and like-minded compatriots) has just touched down at La Casa Encendida and runs until 4 January 2009.

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.
