Peter Walsh ltd edition print competition 
Peter J Walsh rose to prominence during the late Eighties by capturing many iconic images of the chief protagonists of the Madchester era including Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and many more. He also became a regular at FAC 51 The Hacienda and documented the sights, sounds and smells of many a night at the legendary club.

Peter has just launched an online shop for the sale of exhibition quality inkjet prints of a selection of his work. Prints are available in A5, A4 and A3 sizes in limited editions of 250 and prices start at 25 pounds.

To celebrate the launch, Cerysmatic Factory is proud to present a competition to win an A3-sized exhibition inkjet print (regular price £100) of a Walsh original photo of the late Tony Wilson. Peter has set the question which is:

Which group of people from the Sixties was Tony inspired by?

A. The Situation Room
B. The Situationists
C. The Stipulation

And now the small print: Answers by email please. One entry per person. Closing date Friday 15 July 22:00 BST. By entering you agree to be added to the email newsletter that Peter will send out at occasional intervals to notify interested parties about updates to his site. The winner will be selected at random out of the Cerysmatic hat soon after the closing date.

Good luck!

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".
