Happy Mondays in MOJO 
There's an apparently exclusive interview with Happy Mondays in, oddly enough, issue 222 (May 2012) of Mojo magazine. All the original line-up plus ex-manager Nathan McGough are involved and on good form. But it seems that the tour billing should be slightly modified because Bez reveals that he won't be dancing on the upcoming tour but rather will be DJing and compering. This is because his "whole pelvic-leg region that's given up the chase".

MOJO is out now priced £4.50.

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".
