02 May 2010Twist of Fate Reeder Remixes
There are four Mark Reeder remixes in all:
No Fate Remix ["more like the original but with a DJ-friendly 4/4 beat"]
No Fate Remix Radio Version
Led's Twist Again Remix
Synth of Fate Remix ["a synthpop DJ version similar in style to the Sink or Swim Waterwing Remix']
You can listen now to the last of these on Mark Reeder's MySpace and expect a digital release along the lines of the Sink or Swim Remix Bundle at some point.
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".
