More Angel Galore 
Good to see Fiona Allen - former Haçienda Maître D' and proprietor of Factory merchandising emporium FAC281: The Area - popping up in this evening's episode of BBC medical drama Casualty, playing Fraser Beaumont: a "whip-cracking administrative advisor".

Obviously the interview in Scream City 5 will have provided Fiona's profile a necessary boost.

Four minutes to satellite!

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".
