The event takes place at the Roundhouse in London on 9 November 2009 and will feature a screening of a 20-minute film of the photos in the book edited to a specially-composed soundtrack by Graham Massey. This will be followed a talk about Manchester with Paul Morley, Kevin Cummins, Mike Pickering and another guest. All this, plus a Q&A session and a book signing.

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".
