Minny Pops - A Quietus Occasion 
A reminder that Minny Pops play The Lexington in London on Monday 26 November as part of A Quietus Occasion being organised by Tim Burgess and O Genesis. A special surprise is promised for the first 50 attendees so don't be late (and try not to spend too long round the corner in the Craft Beer Co, Islington)!

The gig coincides with the band's new single release, Waiting For This To Happen/Glistering [OGEN 027]. The special live event will also feature a live set from Pavlov's Children, readings by Craig Parkinson (who played Tony Wilson in Control) and DJ spots by Tim Burgess and Nik Colk Void of Factory Floor.

Tickets priced 9.00 GBP are still available via WeGotTickets.

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.
