Ooooer! What chance a guitar, a bass and a noise generator? Just for old time's sake. ;-)

This date is being shifted to a week later on 19 May - see upcoming imminent announcement. Messrs Kerr, Topping and Terrell are collectively known as Sum Ratios (geddit?) or at least they are going to live with that name for a bit to see if they like it.

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".
