Human Noise 7" single
Fred Deakin (Lemon Jelly) Impotent Fury Remixes

Manicured Noise
The Human League

Very Limited, White Vinyl Numbered 7" (500 copies) with unique artwork by Fred Deakin (Airside/Lemon Jelly).

A - Manicured Noise - Moscow 1980 (Impotent Fury Remix)
B - The Human League - The Dignity Of Labour Part 3 (Impotent Fury Remix)

In 2007 Fred Deakin, acclaimed electronic musician (Lemon Jelly), designer and DJ, selected Moscow 1980 from the Northern Stories 1978/80 album for his Triptyche mix set. A mutual affection between CTR and Fred for the Post-punk era was apparent. Very shortly afterwards came the lucky and unexpected unearthing of the long lost master tapes for the first Manicured Noise single, originally released in '80. Moscow was a double A side with Metronome.

Fred has reworked the track into a Nu-Balearic storm, infused with the spirit of the Thrashing Doves. The track recently gained much attention after BBCR1 play on a Rob-Da-Bank Nu-Balearic special.

On the B side is Fred's fluid interpretation of an early Human League cut, plucked from obscurity and crafted for the tail end of another turbulent decade.

The release comes in a special sleeve featuring original artwork by Fred.

Very Limited and Very Lovely.

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.
