Peter Walsh print competition winner 
Congratulations to Gordon Watt who is the winner of our recent Peter J Walsh Limited Edition Print Competition. An A3-sized exhibition inkjet print (regular price £100) of a Walsh original photo of the late Tony Wilson will be on the way very soon. Gordon (and everyone else who entered) correctly knew that the group of people from the Sixties who Tony was inspired by was The Situationists (or Les Situationnistes if you will).

Peter Walsh's online shop is open for the sale of exhibition quality inkjet prints of a selection of his work including Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and many more. Prints are available in A5, A4 and A3 sizes in limited editions of 250 and prices start at 25 pounds.

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.
