THE NAMES / In Mutation / TWI 098 
The Names

Names In Mutation is an archive CD featuring two side-projects by Belgian cold wave group The Names.

The first three tracks on the CD were originally released as a solo cassette single by guitarist Marc Deprez in April 1981. Somewhat in the style of The Durutti Column, the K7 was issued in a limited edition of just 100 copies with hand-coloured inserts. A video clip for Balade a Tervueren was also included on the Crepuscule compilation video Umbrellas in the Sun (TWI 099), filmed in the picturesque grounds of the Royal Central Africa Museum in Tervuren.

Tracks from Marc’s cassette were also used as interval music on Crepuscule package tour Dialogue North-South in February 1982. On this tour The Names played as Names In Mutation, performing only the darker ‘night’ side of their acclaimed Swimming album, along with short instrumental Music for Someone and an absurdist introduction by emcee Wally van Middendorp (of Minny Pops). The set was recorded at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels on 3 February 1982.

The CD is packaged in a card wallet. Cover image by Jo Van de Vyver, courtesy of RMCA Tervueren. For further details click here
