Peter Saville™: Winter Wireframes 2009 
So you've been rolling along (gently now, those old bones break so easily nowadays) for the past few summers on your Peter Saville™ skateboard decks from Supreme, kitted out with your Peter Saville™ Y-3 trainers (when they're not enshrined on your Peter Saville™ plinth), all the while balancing a Peter Saville™ Sony PSP guitar cut-out in one hand and a pile of Peter Saville™ books & magazines in the other.

At a loss for what to do this winter in a Peter Saville™-designed sporty style? No worries, Peter Saville™ has got you covered. Literally. Introducing Peter Saville™-designed snowboarding wear from DC Shoes. Peter Saville™ parkas and snowpants? You betcha. ('Anexus D' and 'Sunno D' for yer night-time commando mercenary types, and 'Tazer D' for yer regular day-time ninjas.) Mind those Peter Saville™ Y-3 trainers in the slush though...

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.
