Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a good wheeze, whereas Disco was warm cuddly and inclusive,it had crossed into the mainstream, The Hacienda and Factory had a different experience in mind,one that conjured angst fear and paranoia. The dancefloor wasn't a place for free love and tolerance but reflected the atmosphere of modern city living. This 2cd (along with volume 1) is the soundtrack, the dancebeatwhile similar to Disco was flattened thereby oppressing the euphoria usually assosciated with dance, the sound was sometimes atonal,with elements of Teutonic Tuneage(Krautrock) modernism and Moroder. Most of it was produced by members of New Order and as you may guess,along with the Hac wasn't popular. It would take the advent of Chicago House and rave for that tochange,the irony being that alot of these tracks fed into underground scenes in NY, Detroit and Chicago thus settin off a revolution whose effects we still feel today. See also Trevor Jackson's Metal Dance series and for UK answer to house Richard Sen This Ain't Chicago all are good.

Rare 80s grooves from Factory Records 9 Jun 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Factory Records is best known as the label that launched Joy Division and later New Order, but they also had an ambitious roster of lesser known artists that made some very interesting music. Many of these "alternative" acts from the 1980s released 12-inch extended mixes of singles or album tracks, which is mostly what you'll find on this 2-CD compilation. There's some classic stuff to be found on here, along with some true Factory rarities and a few tracks that are better off forgotten.

I really enjoyed hearing the two songs by ESG --- a trio of sisters from the South Bronx --- again. The booklet that comes with the CD (it includes a short history of each act, photos, and details about the song)describes ESG's sound as "PiL meets Motown on the wrong side of the Triborough Bridge." Brilliant description! But the PiL meets funk sound could also be applied to the slinky tracks by A Certain Ratio on here also. Another superb track is "Fate" by Nyam Nyam, which uses a synthesizer sequence that is described as "Moroder-esque" but remind me even more of an old Patrick Cowley song. I'm also ecstatic about finally getting "You Hurt Me" by Shark Vegas on CD. I used to own the 12-inch vinyl of that song years ago and it was always a favorite. Other standouts on this collection include the track by Biting Tongues, the dub-influenced tune by Sir Horatio (which is actually A Certain Ratio), and tunes by the Durutti Column, Section 25, and Anna Domino. Lots of goodies on here that will bring back memories of early 80s club-going days, or introduce you to some unjustly neglected music of that era.

As noted before, the CDs come with a very informative booklet, but unfortunately it was designed by an overzealous art department. The booklet has tiny white font on a shiny silver background, which makes reading the details a bit difficult. Good luck trying to read it all without squinting! Also, the CDs come in a gatefold paper sleeve, making them prone to scratches. Other than those minor complaints, this is a fine collection of tunes, and very fairly priced for two CDs.

Here is the complete track listing:

01. A Certain Ratio - The Fox

09. Section 25 - Knew Noise
10. Shark Vegas - You Hurt Me
11. Fadela - N'Sel Fik
12. Kalima - Land of Dreams

Disc Two:
01. 52nd Street - Can't Afford
02. Nyam Nyam - Fate
03. A Certain Ratio - Lucinda
04. ESG - You're No Good
05. Swamp Children - Softly Saying Goodbye
06. Quando Quango - Go Exciting
07. Surprize - In Movimento
08. Anna Domino - Take That
09. The Wake - Host
10. Royal Family and The Poor - Vaneigem Mix
11. Section 25 - Sakura
12. Ad Infinitum - Telstar
