The Names

As flagged earlier this year, our friends in Belgium, The Names are back - recording a new album and with their new website at thenames.be.

Michel Sordinia (vocals and bass guitar) and Marc Deprez (guitars), with Christophe Boulenger on keyboards and Laurent Loddewijckx on drums will be in the Noise Factory studio in Wierde from tomorrow to work on the new album 'Nowherarians', a double album of totally new songs, and will follow its 2015 release with a string of new concerts.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
