New Order - From Heaven To Heaven 
As trailed back in March, and slightly later than expected, Dec Hickey's lavish photo book, From Heaven to Heaven New Order Live The Early Years (1981-1984) at Close Quarters will be published in January 2012.

The book, which is priced at £30, contains over 400 unpublished photos of the band and 200 plus images of rare memorabilia. There are Forewords by Peter Hook and Stephen Morris and the Introduction is by Moby.

The first 750 copies only, will 1) be hand numbered and signed by the author, 2) include a genuine unused ticket from New Order's 24 May, 1984 gig at Leicester Palais and 3) enter the buyer into a free draw for one of three A2 size Limited Edition prints. Two of the best photos from the book, plus another unpublished shot of the band, exclusive to this print, will each be produced on archive paper, signed by the photographer, in a numbered run of 20.

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.
