Wake up London you're dead! 
The Wake have just been confirmed for the final day of the four-day London Popfest 2010 at The Lexington, Islington, London on Sunday 28 February 2010.

The Wake recently broke a long live silence with a stunning set at A Factory Night (And then again) at Plan K in Brussels.

Second-on-the-bill Horse Shoes feature a member of The Drums (who were recently seen taking the stage for an impromptu set at FAC 251 The Factory late on Saturday night). Both The Drums and Horse Shoes cite The Wake as a major influence.

Please note that this is an early show with the doors opening at 3pm.

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".
