From Manchester To Japan With Love 
Following the postponement of their Japan tour due to the recent earthquake, The Hacienda decided to recast its Easter event in aid of the country.

From Manchester to Japan With Love is a special benefit night at Sankeys in Manchester on Good Friday 22 April 2011 featuring Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Justin Robertson, Delphic (DJ set), Peter Hook, Jon Dasilva, Dave Haslam, 808 State (DJ set), Rowetta (Live PA) and much more.

All proceeds from the night will be going to disaster relief charities and the night looks set to be a major Manchester occasion. We are also raising money via just giving for people who cannot attend the event via Just Giving.

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.
