Paul Morley: The Tony Wilson Interviews 
Vini Reilly played and talked with Paul Morley at a special spoken word event at the Purcell Room in London last Wednesday. The event was part of Morley's ongoing preparations for a forthcoming book about Tony Wilson. The other guests were poet Mike Garry and Richard Boon (ex-Buzzcocks manager).

The interviews were interspersed with previously unseen footage shot by Paul's sister Carol of Tony Wilson (c. 2005) in preparation for a film about a Joy Division tribute band from China. Undoubted star of the show was William the dog (recently the winning answer of a Cerysmatic competition) who shows great enthusiasm for barking and less for getting back into the car!

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".
