Nova Nova & Peter Hook 'Low Ends'

Nova Nova & Peter Hook's Low Ends, originally released in 2013, will be issued on limited edition vinyl by Atal Music for Record Store Day - 19 April 2014. There will be two separate 7-inch singles pressed in different coloured sleeves.

The history of Low Ends is somewhat complex...

In 2002, Malcolm McLaren had been living in Paris for several years when he met and hired Thierry Criscione as the producer of his new album. Malcolm McLaren got in touch with his old friend Tony Wilson, as he wished to use the lead vocals from Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart in a new track called Love Will. Thierry Criscione then asked his friend Marc Durif from the French electronica band Nova Nova to finalise the track's production. Upon completion, Tony Wilson gave a copy to Peter Hook.

Later, when Marc Durif heard that Hooky had used the track in his own DJ sets, Marc sent Peter Hook an acoustic piano arrangement of LWTUA he had done using the full Ian Curtis acappella. Hooky then agreed to play bass on a new track by Marc which eventually became Low Ends.

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.
