Updated live plans for A Certain Ratio as their Marseille gig on 28 May has been cancelled. The Lyon gig is shifted a day to fill the gap. Meanwhile a gig at The Deaf Institute in Manchester has been announced along with others in the UK and mainland Europe.

24 May - 19:30 The Deaf Institute, Manchester
28 May - 20:00 Ninkasi, Lyon
29 May - 20:00 Primavera, Barcelona
30 May - 0:00 Fundação de Serralves, Porto
15 Jun - 19:30 The Beat Happening Sessions @ Dingwalls, London
4 Jul - 20:00 Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
6 Sep - 20:00 Offset Festival, Chigwell
3 Oct - 20:00 Le Plan - Factory Festival, Paris

For the avoidance of doubt, the Factory Festival in October would not appear to be a festival of Factory Records related artists but rather a festival that has run since 1999 using the Factory title.

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.
