The very very very very last gig? 
The Adventure Babies come out of previously-apparently permanent retirement to play the IAStival Festival in Manchester's Heaton Park today. Jez Bramwell writes on the Festival's official blog of the parallels with the AdBabs' previous Heaton Park appearance as part of the Cities In The Park Factory day back in 1991. Jez also assures Cerysmatic that it's "not a comeback - just for fun".

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".
