A really great collection of work from one of the coolest, most compelling groups to record for the legendary Factory Records label – a combo who were contemporaries of Joy Division and New Order, but who had a very different sound! A Certain Ration – or ACR for short – had a ... (Rock) read moreCD

Sextet ... CD Factory/Mute, 1982. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the funkiest album ever by the groundbreaking British group A Certain Ratio – filled with lots of heavy post-disco bass and percussion, all rattling away with the energy of some of the best work on Ze Records a the time! The group's dark moody feel is still largely in place, ... (Rock) read moreCD
An amazing album from the early days of the Factory Records label – and a set that's quite different than the dark sounds of groups like Joy Division or Section 25 – but which is an equally essential part of that scene at the time! The set features mostly solo work from guitarist Vini ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Factory Quartet ... LP Factory (UK), 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ...
A dark classic that broke out of the underground and forever transformed the world of dance music! "Blue Monday" has this infectious bass/keyboard riff that you'll recognize immediately – and which you've heard emulated a million times in electro house tracks from later on in the ...

The fantastic first single from New Order – issued here with the first take on the tune, which was recorded in the US at a time when the group, as Joy Division, were still reeling from the loss of Ian Curtis! The track's a great bridge between the two eras – and already sets up that ... (Rock) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
The second take of New Order's classic "Ceremony" – recorded by the band in England, after Gillian had joined the group – with a vibe that's maybe slightly less dark than the original take, almost as if she's helping the lads to put the death of Ian Curtis behind them – ...

Temporarily Out Of Stock
New Order take a slightly sweeter turn for this mid 80s set – but still never lose the charm that won us from their first few records! There's a warmth here we might not have expected in the immediate post-Joy Division years – and a catchy tunefulness on some of the biggest crossover ... (Rock) read moreCD

Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful early work from New Order – a stunning full-length set that brilliantly follows on the promise of their initial singles! Production is by Martin Hannett at the top of his game – almost even more sonically sensitive to New Order's work than that of Joy Division – ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really cool record from one of our favorite groups on Factory Records – a set when they were moving more into electronic and dance-oriented styles, but also working in a bit of their older psych elements too – maybe a vibe that's a precursor of some Creation and Manchester modes to ...

A massive package of work from the legendary Factory Records label – that important Manchester home to Joy Division, New Order, and a host of other important UK groups in the post-punk years – a company that got plenty of our pocket change when we were young! Factory was always a cut ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
