Priceless Restoration 
Cath Carroll discusses the long-lost Factory Records album by Miaow in the Padcast #18.

Cath talks about Miaow and the release of Priceless Restoration, a cassette containing the 1987 demos of "Priceless Innuendo" in 1987, on Lilypad Records this Valentine's Day.

Miaow released two singles on Factory, FAC 179 When It All Comes Down and FAC 189 Break The Code, but split before they could record the album which had got to the stage of being assigned a FAC number (210) and the working title Priceless Innuendos. A further single, Marry Me Dusty (Springfield) was also slated to come out as FAC 209. Cath explains that this track dates from an even earlier session than the bulk of the Priceless tracks. Of course, FACT 210 eventually came out as the Cath Carroll solo album, England Made Me.

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".
