Biting Tongues was formed when Tony Wilson's Factory Club in Manchester offered an open invitation to experiment, which 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.

About Biting Tongues. This Manchester, England-based unit was formed by Graham Massey and Howard Walmsley in 1980, ostensibly to provide soundtracks for the latter’s live film screenings. With Massey on guitar and Walmsley on saxophone, they added local writer Ken Hollings as vocalist, Colin Seddon on bass and Eddie Sherwood on drums. The Factory album, accompanied by singles ‘Trouble Hand’ and ‘Compressor’, acted as a soundtrack to another Walmsley film (in addition, there was a full-scale video album in 1988, Wall Of Surf). However, as the 80s progressed, Clarke and Kirby drifted off into the ranks of the increasingly successful Yargo, leaving the band’s founding duo to return to work on video/soundtracks. A fifth album was aborted when their fifth record company, Cut Deep, collapsed. In 1985 Factory gave Feverhouse a belated commercial release on album and video, which led to the band joining the label for some long overdue new recordings.

Biting Tongues ‎– Feverhouse - The Soundtrack can be found in its entirety on "Compressed (The Factory Recordings 1984-87)." I concur with Freeman, it's a very good album.
one life
Awesome experimental industrial / ritual type music album, quite out of character with the rest of their ourput due to it being a soundtrack. Think more esoteric Throbbing Gristle crossed with O Yuki Conjugate and the works of Gilbert & Lewis aka Dome, but with lots of other original ideas too. I'm really surprised this isn't yet a real cult collectible. Maybe most don't expect to find such an album within Biting Tongues discography? When I asked the Boutique label if they planned to reissue this - the answer was a flat NO. Why? 1. the tapes are lost, and 2. it never sold well the first time round. I told the label that I'd remastered my LP to digital and they could use it as a master, but they still weren't interested. A shame. Maybe someone from the band could contact me and give me permission to do a limited CDR edition? This is too good an album to be lurking in obscurity. Vinyl fans take note - as I write this there are a good few bargain copies here on Discogs!
