FAC 331 Temporary Contemporary Table 
Commissioned by Tony Wilson, designed by Andy Woodcock and Ed Jackson and broken by Happy Mondays, the FAC 331 Temporary Contemporary Table created for the FAC 251 HQ boardroom almost perfectly sums up the excesses of Factory Records' latter days with its thirty grand price tag. Well, it would do if that was true. The actual cost was two thousand pounds and it was all put together in two weeks.

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".
