Limited double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the fourth studio album by acclaimed Belgian cold wave group The Names, known for their early association with Factory Records and producer Martin 'Zero' Hannett. 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. and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester. Though they have not been prolific over the years, their reputation has grown over the decades and they've inspired loads of post-post-punk bands who have formed in their wake.
