Peter Hook tour flyer

The ever-busy bassist has been busy touring the U.S. with complete renditions of the first two New Order albums, Movement and Power, Corruption and Lies. On his return to these shores in the autumn, much to the delight of those who missed his earlier gigs featuring these two classics, Peter Hook and the Light will embark on a UK tour performing the very same albums, as well as b-sides and singles from the era.

Liverpool will be the first stop on 24th October, followed by Leeds, Colchester and several more before finishing up in Belfast on 23rd November.

Tickets are on sale now from usual outlets including Allgigs here

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.
