Pottsy Party 
Alexandre announces a party in Paris tomorrow night, Mercredi 18 Fevrier:

I am running a party named From Manchester with Love with David Potts (Revenge/Monaco) spinning records from 22 PM until 5 AM.

It will happen at Truskel, 12 rue Feydeau 75005 Paris.

It is a free party.

Here is the link to facebook event : http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=54845225909&ref=nf

Unfortunately, a deliberate lack of any MySecondFacebookTwitterSpaceLife presence prevents me from giving further detail, but here's hoping Pottsy raids his Simple Minds collection (suggestion: I Travel).

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.
