The Factory Records Catalogue 
After something of a hiatus (yep, I think 3 years counts), work has resumed on The Factory Records Catalogue, a project to present the catalogues of Factory Communications Ltd and all subsidiaries in a definitive, fully cross-referenced format has well and truly resumed. The UK (Factory Records) section is nearly finished and after that we will deal with Factory Too, Once, F4, Factory Benelux, Factory US, Factory America, Factory Australasia and last but not least, Ikon.

It's taken 3 years to get this far so it won't be completed overnight (and there are no images at all yet) but it should be worth waiting for.

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".
