Mark now brings Cerysmatic up to date with the very latest:
"A different mix [of Miracle Cure] will appear on a B&J remixes album we've made, for release in spring of 2009. Also I've just remixed the new Pet Shop Boys/Sam Taylor-Wood single on KOMPAKT records I'm In Love With a German Film Star - it's the Rundfunk Radio Mix which is only on the 7" single.
"I also have made the Stuck in the 80s Remix on the 12-inch and CD single and a Rias Radio Mix version, which is not on any record and is only for radio play.
"Also coming soon are two tracks that I've remixed for Anne Clark (Full Moon and If...) off her new album."
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".
