Factory Records Special

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 first two discs dating between 1978-1984 with one New Order tune from the third disc. A probable future follow up show will complete the history of Factory Records 1983-1992. This will include the Happy Mondays, Electronic, Northside, James and others. I hope you enjoys the Twisted Groove’s spin through some of Britain’s music history.

Throbbing Gristle

When I heard some weeks back that Throbbing Gristle was going to play Coachella and being a lover of their past work I went in search of their newest release Part Two: The Endless Note (2007). After getting into the record I decided to use it as a springboard for this weeks show.

Kraut and Analog Electronic

Because I was unable to create a new show for this week I am uploading a special show from the past. This show was done just after attending and Djing my friend Alex Lancaster’s wedding. Alex and I started the Twisted Groove radio show together sometime in 2000. Without meeting Alex and us brainstorming together the Twisted Groove may never have happened. The first set is built around the early electronic dance music Alex turned me onto in the early days of the Twisted Groove. The second set is built on my love of Kraut or Berlin School electronic, a style of electronic music I have always been attracted to. Originally aired October 4, 2008.

Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA, Jerry Harrison, Richard A Kirk, Severed Heads, Add N to (X), Neu!, Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra, Throbbing Gristle, Soft Cell
