Escape From Planet Rock 
Escape From Planet Rock is ex-Cabaret Voltaire man Stephen Mallinder's insights in two parts into "the music scene in northern England in the 1970's-80's, particularly Sheffield".

Part One is out now with Two to follow in the next issue of Indie Music Monthly.

Meanwhile, Mal's 2011 PhD thesis, Movement: Journey of the Beat, is also available for a more involved discussion of " the trajectory and transition of popular culture through the modality of rhythm".

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".
