04 November 2013Haçienda Classics
The full story of how the original Haçienda Classics compilation for the tenth birthday of FAC 51 The Haçienda never came to be was told in Scream City 2 by moist back in the mists of 2006. With the recent discovery of those compact cassette tapes (see untreated photo above of cassette one side one) we thought it an opportune moment to bring the original tracklisting into the digital age via Spotify. Various tracks (approximately one third - indicated [x]) are not available for whatever reason but our 'Haçienda Classics selection' playlist is presented for your pleasure.

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".
