Kevin Hewick's 7 songs at the 12 Bar 
Kevin Hewick's latest London appearance was at the charmingly intimate (or pokey) 12 Bar Club on Denmark Street on Monday 11 January. After a warm-up in the Dog and Duck, Kevin was second on at the 12 Bar's Blang! night. After settling in quickly, Kevin's performance was one of his best (ignoring those Leicester 3-hr marathons) and he entertained us as much with his stories about Florence and Rage Against The Machine as with his Tommy-esque rock operas.

Cheers Kevin and the 12 Bar for a great night and hi to Jude out of Subterraneans (who played the Billy Mackenzie Tribute gig in 2007), Lee and David Q.

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".
