Polite Postcards & Badges sets competition 
Factory Records Postcard Set 1978-82

Here's your chance to win two splendid Factory Records boxed sets of postcards and badges courtesy of those lovely people at Polite Cards and Factory Editions.

The Factory Records Postcard Set1978-82 contains 25 postcards documenting the early era of the label. This lovingly put together set was released late last year and was accompanied by 3 enamel badges which earlier this year were given the boxed set treatment too. Factory Records Enamel Badges 2013 contains both black and red versions of a FAC 120 reproduction plus a new badge based on the FAC 47 anvil logo.

Both boxed sets are styled on the classic Factory Records boxed cassette series in complementary grey tones and retail at 25.00 GBP each via Polite.

In order to win one of each boxed set, all you have to do is answer this simple question:

What is the typeface used on the boxes used for the original Factory "hessian" cassette box series and the new Polite sets?

Answers please by email to reach us no later than 22:00 GMT on Sunday 12 May 2013. Usual Cerysmatic Factory competition rules apply - only one entry per person and the winner will be pulled out the Cerysmatic hat shortly after the closing deadline.

Good luck!

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.
