Hewick, Haynes & James 
Kevin Hewick will be one of the acts on the indoor stage at Leicester Summer Sundae Weekender at 1.00pm on Sunday 16 August 2009 with his new guitar-bass-drums punk art distortion power trio Hewick, Haynes & James.

Kevin says "We are making a serious bid to be the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world - how timely that we have arrived just at the moment when rock seemed dead..."

The band will make their London debut at Alan McGee's Death Disco night at Notting Hill Arts Centre on Wednesday 14 October 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.
