The Names: Swimming

1. Product Details

Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of this 1982 debut album by Belgian new wave group the Names. Between 1979 and 1982 the Names recorded a string of excellent records for Factory, Factory Benelux and Les Disques du Crépuscule, all helmed by legendary producer Martin Hannett. Recorded at Strawberry Studios in Manchester, Swimming has come to be regarded as a European cold wave classic, combining strong songwriting from Michel Sordinia and poised, tasteful delivery by guitarist Marc Deprez and keyboards player Christophe Den Tandt.
