Peter Walsh ltd edition print competition 
Peter J Walsh rose to prominence during the late Eighties by capturing many iconic images of the chief protagonists of the Madchester era including Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and many more. He also became a regular at FAC 51 The Hacienda and documented the sights, sounds and smells of many a night at the legendary club.

Peter has just launched an online shop for the sale of exhibition quality inkjet prints of a selection of his work. Prints are available in A5, A4 and A3 sizes in limited editions of 250 and prices start at 25 pounds.

To celebrate the launch, Cerysmatic Factory is proud to present a competition to win an A3-sized exhibition inkjet print (regular price £100) of a Walsh original photo of the late Tony Wilson. Peter has set the question which is:

A. The Situation Room
B. The Situationists
C. The Stipulation

And now the small print: Answers by email please. One entry per person. Closing date Friday 15 July 22:00 BST. By entering you agree to be added to the email newsletter that Peter will send out at occasional intervals to notify interested parties about updates to his site.

Good luck!

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.
