and in a terrible shock, it features the re-recorded version of Ceremony. How is it that every New Order related product released seems to be error prone?

The box set itself also lists Ceremony (Original Version) so presumably it's wrong on there too. If anyone has this item and could scan the cover I'll create a page for it. cheeers.

Nope, in a strange Factory-esque twist they got it right on the box set.

Sister Ray had 5 copies only - I was 37th in the queue. Therefore, greddy scum on eBay got there first.

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".
