06 February 2010Bad Lieutenant Reeder remixes
In addition, Mark has made a special 5.1 video mix of his Rettungsring remix to accompany a new video cut by director Robert Kind. This will also be out for download soon.
Mark has been invited to exhibit a selection of his photos of Ian Curtis at the forthcoming Macclesfield Ian Curtis exhibition (we await further details on that one).
Finally, and away from the FAC world this time, Mr Reeder is currently remixing Underpass for John Foxx and you can expect a 5.1 mix of that too.
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".
