Phookin Salford 
Friday 12th November will see PMT House of Rock present An Evening with Peter Hook at their Salford music store - just down Regent Road from Joy Division's first rehearsal room.

In addition to the usual no-holes-barred Q&A session and book-signing, Hooky will present other - as yet unannounced - unknown pleasures.

The evening will also showcase a greatly expanded version of the excellent exhibition of Joy Division/New Order/Factory equipment and artefacts first shown for four days in May at FAC251, while out in the car park Ronnie Lane's mobile recording studio - returning from the previous night's recording of The Light's Unknown Pleasures - will be available for viewing.

Only 251 tickets - priced GBP10 - are available from the PMT store itself.

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.
