Factory (Records/Communications)

~ Label

Annotation

Factory Records AKA Factory Communications Ltd.
Cult post-punk label founded by Tony Wilson in Manchester, UK, with a roster that is a who's who? of indie/dance music. Financial reasons led the once proudly independent label to form business relationships with major labels. Most of the back catalogue is controlled by London Records, which has re-issued some recordings via its London Records 90 imprint, with distribution by Warner Music.

Some of the catalogue numbers are not listed here because they were assigned to objects that weren't records. Numbers were given to buildings and posters, for example.
