Distractions retrospective out Spring 2012 
The long-awaited Distractions retrospective will be released on Hidden Masters in Spring 2012. It will include the impossibly-catchy Factory Records single FAC 12 Time Goes By So Slow in all its glory. All tracks will be fully remastered and will include the Nobody's Perfect album originally released via Island.

Around about the same time that the new studio album will be released on Occultation.

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".
