From the 21st Amendment to Phoenix, Arizona 
It's that time of year again. Kick out the old and welcome the new.

Yes, I'll be on holiday for a few weeks and moist will be minding the shop. Remember to stop by and say hi.

Please note that Scream City will not be on sale again until late October.

Ever been to Utah?

I used to live in Utah, where are you going exactly? Salt Lake City has "life" but outside of that it's a nature lovers part of the country. If you go to Phoenix, go to Stink Weeds records, it's pretty good. Also, while in Utah eat what is known as a scone.

The full itinerary is California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona. Possibly dip into Colorado too. We'll be in Utah for the day when we visit Monument Valley.

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.
