The recent Atonal festival in Berlin featured a rare live performance by Cabaret Voltaire and, on the Contort night, Ike Yard. The Quietus and Secret Thirteen reviews nicely sums it all up.

In other Ike Yard news, Stuart Argabright tells us that Dior designer Raf Simons wanted to use the Regis remix of 'Loss' in their Spring-Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear show video(s) and a suitable license was done.

Finally, there's a long-awaited Gretchen Bender retrospective featuring her legendary video installation Total Recall at Tate Liverpool from 7 November to 8 February 2015.

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".
