MancsGiving @ The Carlton Club 4 June

MancsGiving is a charity event in aid of the victims of the events of 22 May 2017 is being held at the Carlton Club in Manchester on Saturday 8 July from 13:00-23:00. This is a rearranged date after the one initially set clashed with other supportive events on in the Manchester area.

The Factory connection comes from The Distractions who are in the line-up and possibly with Dr John Cooper Clarke who is on the awaiting confirmation list.

"After the tragic few days, the Carlton Club wishes to do something to return some love into the people of Manchester. We open our doors and our hearts to our community with MancsGiving. We urge you to come down and celebrate the Mancunian spirit. Artists and helpers near and far have donated their time to this cause and we humbly thank them."

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.
