Annik Honoré 
We were shocked to hear the very sad news that Annik Honoré, a co-founder of Les Disques du Crépuscule and Factory Benelux has passed away aged 56 following a serious illness.

In a fitting tribute, FBN/Crépuscule's James Nice said she was "was one the warmest, kindest, most generous and honourable people it's been my privilege to know".

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".
