Working With Wim 
Former 8vo partners Mark Holt and Hamish Muir join Adrian Shaughnessy and Ben Bos on Monday 9 May at the Design Museum in London for a two-part conversation with Tony Brook, the curator of the current Graphic Odyssey exhibition of the work of highly influential graphic designer/typographer Wim Crouwel.

In the first part of the evening which is themed around the experiences of those who have worked with Crouwel, Brook will interview Shaughnessy and Bos and this will be followed by Brook plus the two ex-8vo-ers Holt and Muir.

Tickets are priced at 15 GBP (non-members) and the price includes admission to Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey.

MuirMcNeil has also designed a rather good poster for the exhibition which is available from the Design Museum Shop.

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".
