Just in time for our pensions to kick in 
The Orch's debut album of "spoken word and electronica" Small Times is due to come out on Manchester label Skinny Dog Records on 6 December and a Manchester gig is promised to coincide - full details to follow.

If taster track Without a Trace is anything to go by it will have been well worth the long wait since the Factory Sample Too.

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".
