Blurt - Live in Berlin [FBN 5] 
Factory Benelux presents a 500-copy limited edition 10" vinyl edition of Live In Berlin, the 1981 debut album by Blurt.

Live In Berlin, a blistering live set taped at the Berlin Free University on 13 December 1980, was scheduled for release as a 10" album on Factory Benelux (FBN 5) the following year. However, after Blurt parted company with Factory the set appeared as a regular 12" album on Armageddon.

In order to fit all 8 tracks this remastered version of Live In Berlin also includes a bonus 45 rpm 7" single. Sleevenotes by Wire editor Chris Bohn perfect this highly collectible package.

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.
