New Order plus Gillian minus Hooky 
New Order make a surprise return to live action with two, erm, one-off gigs in France and Belgium this October. It's a welcome return for Gillian Gilbert and a not-too-surprising no-show for Peter Hook. Phil Cunningham on guitar and keyboard and Tom Chapman on bass complete the line-up.

The gigs are at Ancienne Belgique in Brussels on 17 October and La Bataclan in Paris on 18 October. No details as yet of pricing or availability but this will follow.

Labels: , , ,

So it's Bad Loo with Gillian on keys?

I've lost interest since I saw them a few years back with Phil Cunn rocking out to Blue Monday on his guitar.

It just doesn't work.

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".
