Updated live plans for A Certain Ratio as their Marseille gig on 28 May has been cancelled. The Lyon gig is shifted a day to fill the gap. Meanwhile a gig at The Deaf Institute in Manchester has been announced along with others in the UK and mainland Europe.

24 May - 19:30 The Deaf Institute, Manchester
28 May - 20:00 Ninkasi, Lyon
29 May - 20:00 Primavera, Barcelona
30 May - 0:00 Fundação de Serralves, Porto
15 Jun - 19:30 The Beat Happening Sessions @ Dingwalls, London
4 Jul - 20:00 Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
6 Sep - 20:00 Offset Festival, Chigwell
3 Oct - 20:00 Le Plan - Factory Festival, Paris

For the avoidance of doubt, the Factory Festival in October would not appear to be a festival of Factory Records related artists but rather a festival that has run since 1999 using the Factory title.

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".
