A Tribute to Tony Wilson (Part 2) 
Paul Morley continues his tribute to Tony Wilson at the Purcell Rooms in London on Thursday 16 June as part of Meltdown 2011. He will be talking to some of those who knew and worked with Tony Wilson in a similar vein to the event held last October 2010. As well as featuring live music and poet Mike Garry, the evening also includes unreleased footage by Carol Morley, who filmed Anthony H Wilson in Manchester in 2005. At time of going to press the exact nature of the live music element this time round is still to be confirmed.

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".
