Factory Records box set

Here's some more detail from the Factory Records box set, FACTORY RECORDS Communications 1978-92.

These are the credits in the booklet, which, at last, correctly credit Adrian Wright as writer of Time Goes By So Slow:

Interestingly, Eurobeat Ltd were publisher; this company is connected to the first EP that The Distractions recorded, but which was never released, as featured two years ago.  This will, of course, be included in Parabolically Yours, news of which will be released as soon as some final legalities are ironed out.
