17 October 2013Hacienda Paris in the Swing
FAC51 The Hacienda visits Paris later this month for a special event Swing At The Top: The Factory with the theme of Factory Records meets Andy Warhol's The Factory.
A classic DJ line-up featuring headliners Pickering and Park, plus 808 State, Allister Whitehead and Peter Hook is complemented by various French bands and DJs.
It's 8 Euro to get in and apparently there's a free hotdog and swingtop (beer, hopefully).

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".
