Meltdown with ESG, 23 Skidoo & Acid Brass 
James Lavelle's Meltdown with ESG, 23 Skidoo & Jeremy Deller's Acid Brass

James Lavelle (UNKLE, Mo' Wax) is this year's Meltdown curator at London's South Bank and he has concocted a stylistically varied line-up that includes Neneh Cherry, Edwyn Collins, Mark Lanegan, Goldie and it isn't without a Factory Records connection. New York No-Wavers ESG (last seen on these shores playing dates in January) perform on 21 June with 23 Skidoo. They are followed the next day by Jeremy Deller's classic Acid Brass featuring the Fairey Band.

Tickets go on sale 1 April (South Bank members) and 3 April (general sale).

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".
