Swing O.S.T. by Gillian & Stephen 
Released by Gillian and Stephen on their own label, a 12" vinyl previously only available at Art Institution FRAC Champagne-Ardenne along with an extended CD featuring 3 remixes by the fantastic Factory Floor, who've collaborated with Gillian and Stephen since first meeting in early 2010.

The music was originally conceived and written as a soundtrack to Anna Blessman & Peter Saville's exhibition “Swing Project 1” between October 2010 and January 2011 at FRAC Champagne-Ardenne in France.

Stephen Morris describes the concept thus: "The original idea for the music was that it should give the impression that some sort of European Techno party was going on in a nearby room. So that while wandering around the show you would be enticed by this non existent dance floor."

The artwork is designed by Saville Available as a Vinyl/CD package in a limited edition run of 1000

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.
