Boomkat Product Review:
"Factory Benelux presents In Time, a new studio collection by acclaimed Belgian new wave group The Names, best known for their association with Factory Records and producer Martin ‘Zero’ Hannett. Between 1980 and 1982 The Names recorded a string of classic records for Factory, Factory Benelux and Les Disques du Crepuscule. Debut album Swimming combined fluent songwriting from Michel Sordinia and poised, tasteful delivery by guitarist Marc Deprez and keyboards player Christophe Den Tandt. "Swimming retains a gorgeously shrouded, sepulchral mood" wrote Mojo magazine in 2011. "Intelligent and imaginative" said The Face back in 1982. In Time gathers together selected tracks from two studio albums released by the group independently in 1997 and 2009. Like Swimming it features cover art and typography by Benoit Hennebert, and is in some respects a sequel to their acclaimed Eighties debut, with the tracks split into contrasting ‘day’ and ‘night’ sides, and mixing dynamic modern rock songs with longer, more contemplative tracks. Halloween In June is perhaps the best song Michel Sordinia has written since their sublime Factory single Nightshift back in 1980, and features guest vocals from French pop polymath Isabelle Antena. In Time also features a heartfelt tribute to Hannett (“Zeroes”) as well as two songs by keys player Christophe Den Tandt, the lyrics of which reflect his time as a visiting doctorate student at Yale University."
