Your Heart Out on A Certain Ratio's Sextet 
The new edition of Your Heart Out (YHO 36) is an extensive re-appraisal of ACR's Sextet album. The pdf is a free download and is fully illustrated.

The self-produced album which contains classics such as Knife Slits Water, Skipscada and Rialto was a marked departure from the previous output and rightly deserves such an in-depth critical examination.

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".
