The flipside of Cerysmatic 
Cerysmatic is off on holiday but Paul Pledger who you may know from the excellent Flipside Reviews is going to mind the shop for a while. Paul is a long-time associate of ours and has contributed in the past, most recently on the Wim Mertens discography. He also wrote some of the band profiles for the Factory Records Catalogue.

Over to you Paul.

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".
