First Hacienda Limited Edition Bass ready 
The first of seven FAC 51 Hacienda Limited Edition Bass Guitars, as first announced here, has rolled off the production line at Brian Eastwood Guitars and will be used by Hooky when he and The Light (rumoured to feature Crispy Ambulance's Alan Hempsall on vocals) perform Unknown Pleasures at The Factory on 18 May 2010.

The photos (courtesy Chris Hewitt) show how the pieces of Hacienda dance floor have been integrated into the neck of the bass.

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".
