Recession-busting Durutti Column release 
The Durutti Column have a new limited edition 6CD box set coming out on Artful/Fullfill on 3 November comprising all their recorded output for the label (from Rebellion to Love In The Time of Recession) together with a bonus disc of extra material. A set of art prints of the individual album covers completes the package.

Details are scarce at the moment but the box is attractively priced at £13.99 (via Townsend Records) and so clearly set to become a stocking filler at Christmas.

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".
