VDay Variety Part One

Factory Records Special Vol 2 Part One

The Factory Records box set, “Factory Records: Communications 1978-92″ was released January 12, 2009 (having been delayed twice already). It is compiled by Jon Savage including an essay by Paul Morley and artwork by Peter Saville. It is a great overview of the record company’s output but is obviously missing some tracks that die-hard fans might have expected on the compilation. For this week’s Twisted Groove I play many tracks from the third and forth discs dating from between 1984-1992. This is the second installment of the Factory Records special which includes the Happy Mondays, Electronic, Northside, James and others. This is a very fun dancy side of Factory Records. I hope you enjoys the Twisted Groove’s spin through some of Britain’s music history.
