From Manchester To Japan With Love 
Following the postponement of their Japan tour due to the recent earthquake, The Hacienda decided to recast its Easter event in aid of the country.

From Manchester to Japan With Love is a special benefit night at Sankeys in Manchester on Good Friday 22 April 2011 featuring Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Justin Robertson, Delphic (DJ set), Peter Hook, Jon Dasilva, Dave Haslam, 808 State (DJ set), Rowetta (Live PA) and much more.

All proceeds from the night will be going to disaster relief charities and the night looks set to be a major Manchester occasion. We are also raising money via just giving for people who cannot attend the event via Just Giving.

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".
