A Factory Trip to the Market 
Here's a short notice alert for FAC collectors in London this Friday. Alan, who used to work with Mark Eastwood @ famed record shop The Record Peddler on Swan St in Manchester, will have his own stall at Old Spitalfields Market just off Bishopsgate near Liverpool Street in London this coming Friday 4 April. I am assured that Alan will have some choice FAC items in stock including posters. Maybe see you there?

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".
