Venetian Book Of The Dead live in Leicester 
Kevin Hewick (ex-FAC legend) and Allessandro Monti (Unfolk) play a special afternoon concert at The Criterion in Leicester on Saturday 14 May.

There will be a solo Hewick set after which Kevin will be joined by his special guest from Italy, Alessandro Monti for a semi-acoustic set featuring songs from the Unfolk album The Venetian Book Of The Dead.  This will be the first UK performance of songs from this album following the Italian premiere in Mestre in 2010.

It is hoped that there will be a further show later in 2011 featuring a full electric band.

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.
