Well that didn't last long.

Ithaca, the yuppie playground on John Dalton Street that was once Rare Records (ex-employee Ian Curtis), appears to have lost it's shine, closed it's doors and is now up for grabs - offers in the region of GBP900k.

Bargain, considering the original fit-out costs originally reported here.

Thankfully, the nearby John Dalton Cafe - now rebranded as Essy's - is still a going concern.

Never went, never will. Any restaurant so in love with itself that it has a tab called Celebs on its website deserves all it gets

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".
