He's lost control 
Many thanks to Paul Pledger for minding the shop whilst I was on holiday. I am sure that won't be the last we'll hear from Paul round these parts what with the impending Part 4 of Facs in the Attic and a few more other treats.

Apologies for a few image glitches which arose as a result of remote working. These have now been resolved (as have a few teething template problems).

Anyway, whaddya say!? Let's boogie!

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".
