In a twist on the Peter Saville / +/- plagiarism allegations the band has made the following statement on their Facebook page:

"As far we know, we are not suing them. We're waiting to hear from Mark Robinson at Teenbeat but it would be a shock to find out this way. We're pretty certain that this is just a hoax."

All mentions to this being a hoax, on the band's or the label's Facebook pages, have been removed. Not sure what this means for the "it's a hoax" argument. Either it was a joke that got out of hand, or else they're indeed serious but didn't like the publicity. At any rate, I don't think Saville needs to worry.

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".
