Factory Benelux presents a brand new live CD by The Names, the cult Belgian new wave group known for their past association with Factory Records and producer Martin Hannett.

German Nights was recorded in 2016/2017 over the course of three concerts in Berlin, Hamburg and Freiburg. Produced by Thomas Neidhardt, the set draws heavily on the albums Swimming and Stranger Than You, as will as classic singles including Nightshift, Calcutta, The Astronaut and Spectators of Life. The set concludes with a cover of Velvet Underground classic What Goes On.

“The new members have injected new life into the band,” explains singer and songwriter Michel Sordinia, “and together we’ve updated the arrangements on some of the older songs. But ultimately we’re still the same new wave band who joined Factory Records in 1980.”
