According to Christopher Pinney in his book Camera Indica: Phototype postcards first appeared in 1899 and were immediately hugely popular. Located in the Himalaya, north of Calcutta, the Darjeeling tract was granted to the Brit-ish by the Raja of Sikkim in 1836. Such a mountainous retreat (ill 2) provided relief from the oppressive heat of India and dis-tance from diseases such as cholera. British-built hill stations featured Victorian architec-ture and attitudes, and provided an arena for social hobnobbing.
The Names are a post-punk band from Brussels (Belgium), formed in 1978 around bassist, vocalist and songwriter Michel Sordinia. The early lineup of the band featured Sordinia, guitarist Marc Deprez and drummer/keyboard player Christophe Den Tandt; Robert Frankson and singer Isabelle Hanrez were briefly also members. After local gigs as The Passengers, they changed their name in time for their debut single, "Spectators of Life", released by WEA in 1979 to test the market for homegrown new wave music.
