A Viking Videography 
Check out Shug Sludden's new FAC 383v video blog which he describes in his own inimitable fashion as "a tribute to Joy Division / New Order and the idea is to let fans who haven't seen any of this stuff or have long lost their videos to finally see the stuff which is a bastard to track down."

For more in this vein check out the recent New Order live video page which Cerysmatic produced in collaboration with Shug.

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".
