A 10" Factory Sample 
Some of you may have been lucky enough to secure a copy of the recent 10" sampler issued by Warners on Record Store Day last Saturday. The 4-track vinyl sampler featured four tracks taken from last years 4CD Factory Records Communications 1978-1992 box set. 750 copies only exist.


Joy Division - Transmission
New Order - Ceremony (Original Version)
The Durutti Column - Sketch For Summer
Happy Mondays - Hallelujah (Club Mix)

and in a terrible shock, it features the re-recorded version of Ceremony. How is it that every New Order related product released seems to be error prone?

The box set itself also lists Ceremony (Original Version) so presumably it's wrong on there too. If anyone has this item and could scan the cover I'll create a page for it. cheeers.

Nope, in a strange Factory-esque twist they got it right on the box set.

Sister Ray had 5 copies only - I was 37th in the queue. Therefore, greddy scum on eBay got there first.

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.
