Palatine

The original Factory Records compilation was Palatine: The Factory Story 1979-1990, released in 1991.  The Distractions feature on Volume 3:




Future Factory Records projects remain vague; Fac 3 (Fac 1 was the original Factory venue poster, designed by Peter Saville) looked set to be a 12-inch disco single from The Tiller Boys, but internal confusion has temporarily shelved that.  Factory has expressed an interest in The Distractions, The Negatives, and current musician's favourites Manicured Noise (ask Vic Godard, the Banshees, Wire what they think of M. Noise - politely, of course).

Send Factory Records your cassette: The Factory, Hulme, Manchester.  Let's all take risks this Christmas!

Paul Morley, NME, 2nd December 1978
