Full details to follow.

So what's the point if it's identical in content? This FBN 'editions' malarkey is a crafty ploy to hook in Factory collectors and dupe them into thinking they're getting proper Factory collectables. They're not - and I'm sorry to say it comes down to being a cynical cash cow.

I somehow doubt James has dumptrucks full of money backing up to his house from these reissues.

(And frankly, if he did, that would be fantastic. He would be getting a quid, the bands would be getting a quid, and most importantly all this great music would have people actually listening to it, lots and lots. I really don't see a downside.)

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".
