The Names - Swimming


It's been too damn long since I posted some Belgian post-punk. The Names were a melancholy Belgian post-punk band forming in the late 70s. They released one album and a few singles through Les Disques Du Crépuscule-basically a Belgian division of Factory Records-before breaking up in '82.
This is the 1991 reissue which includes 8 bonus tracks.

If you like this I heavily recommend this, this, this, this, and there are a bunch of great compilations under the 'various artists' tag.
