The Names - In Time [FBN 112 CD]

The Names, the Belgian new wave group best known for their classic recordings with Factory Records, Factory Benelux and Les Disques du Crépuscule release a new collection of studio material entitled 'In Time' via Factory Benelux on 10 February 2014.

In Time comprises selected tracks from two previous studio albums released in 1997 and 2009. Replete with striking cover art and typography by the master himself, Benoît Hennebert, the music is conceptually split into into contrasting 'day' and 'night' 'sides' with both dynamic modern rock songs and longer, more contemplative tracks.

Highlights include Halloween In June featuring Isabelle Antena on guest vocals and Zeroes which is the band's tribute to their late, original producer Martin Hannett.

In Time will available to buy via Factory Benelux mailorder.

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
