"1st March 1996
Dear Friend of The Durutti Column
You've probably waited a long time for this due to our own honed incompetence, fuckers in London shifting our database around the country like it's the Radio One Roadshow, and finally the fact that Chris Joyce, former Durutti Column drummer, has a building that leaks. The posters that we printed for you were damaged by that leak. We have been waiting to get round to printing some fresh ones, but have decided that 'damaged' goods have their own special appeal, so here it is, the two horsemen from the walls of Strasbourg - slightly damaged.
Yours with love
Bruce, Vini, Sam, Desna and Tony"

Pop Your Funk One Year Anniversary Party
With Special Guest DJ Martin Moscrop of A Certain Ratio, Residents Brennan Green & Roy Dank
APT, 419 West 13th Street btwn 9th Ave & Washington
$5 Cover. Advance Tickets at Other Music
Sponsored by XLR8R Magazine.
Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
