Hacienda comes to The Ashley Brook 
From the Salford Star:

Special Salford Night For Hooky's New Book!

"The Hacienda's coming to Salford at last!" says Peter Hook, who together with friends in Langworthy has arranged a special night at the Ashley Brook pub on Liverpool Street as a benefit for the new Christie radiotherapy centre at Salford Royal Hospital.

"I'll be DJing with another Hacienda DJ and signing books" says Hooky "We did a signing in Manchester and my friend Twinny said we should do a Hacienda night in Salford which we're well overdue."

The Hacienda Comes To Salford Night will be at the Ashley Brook pub, 28th November, entrance by donation to Christies.

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.
