September 18 saw Strut and Factory Records present their 2nd volume of FAC. DANCE, a collection of sought after 12" versions and rarities from Manchester’s legendary Factory Records. This release takes things a step further from the first offering, featuring joyful dancefloor jazz by Kalima, electro dub of 52nd Street’s boogie classic ('Can’t Afford'), Cheba Fadela’s Algerian rai blast ('N’Sel Fik'), Certain Ratio’s funk ('The Fox') from their debut release To Each, and loads more. It highlights the early work of the big names such as Martin Hannett, Be Music (the collective pseudonym of New Order members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Peter Hook) and ACR drummer Donald Johnson. Motorik, reggae, to post punk funk, if you are serious about music history or just want to immerse yourself in the stuff that influenced so much of what we take for granted today, this is for you. The CD and LP packages feature detailed track notes by Factory biographer James Nice, together with rare photos. The digital version of the album also features five tracks not found on the physical formats. Have a listen and re-live the heady days of Manchester's The Haçienda, and we'll leave with this quote from Tony Wilson about music and the Happy Monday's integral band member Mark 'Bez' Berry...."Every band needs it's own special chemistry. And Bez was a very good chemist". Enjoy.
