Factory Records was founded by Granada TV presenter Tony WIlson and partner Alan Erasmus in January 1978.  They started a club night in their home town of Manchester and featured local bands such as Durutti Column, Cabaret Voltaire and Joy Division, who Wilson signed to the label after famously writing a "non-contract" in his own blood. With seminal producer Martin Hannett and designer Peter Saville a team of no little talent came together and after a sampler EP featuring 4 acts and singles by others such as Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark and A Certain Ratio, WIlson invested an inheritance from his grandmother in the production of the first Joy Division LP "Unknown Pleasures". After the suicide of Ian Curtis the myth around the label and it's acts grew to a remarkable degree and many started collecting all material on the label, a task made difficult by the complex Factory catalogue numbering system. Not just records were included, but also videos, posters, T-shirts, buildings, stationary etc. We have included all numbers we could find information for here, including CD only releases.
