Toby Kebbell, who impressed with his turn as Rob Gretton in Control will soon be on our cinema screens in RocknRolla, the new "gangsta" film by Guy Ritchie which is released in UK cinemas on Friday 5 September.

The other man to portray Rob on celluloid (in 24 Hour Party People) was Paddy Considine who was last seen this week in the TV version of David Hare's play My Zinc Bed, alongside Jonathan Pryce and Uma Thurman.

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".
