Minny Pops Standstill to Motion competition 
Congrstulations to Sean Connors who is the winner of the recent Minny Pops competition. He wins a copy of Standstill To Motion, the excellent new LTM live album documenting the live show at the Melkweg in Amsterdam thirty years ago.

The answer to the question: "What was the first 7" single release on LTM?" was Een Kus by, yes, you guessed it, Minny Pops.

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition.

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".
