Restatement 
Hats off to Russ for spotting the Peter Saville Q&A session at The Cornerhouse next Thursday 10 July 2008.

The talk will cover "Saville's groundbreaking work for Factory Records in the late 1970s, through to his most recent explorations of art and design's role in the highly commodified, visually hyperliterate, early 21st century."

To be followed by the 'launch' of his latest book Estate in the Cornerhouse bookstore (complimentary drinks!).

I have just booked my ticket (GBP 3.00 Full, GBP 2.50 concession) by telephone on +44 (0)161 200 1500.

FAC 51 The Hacienda
The Names

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".
