Description

Factory Records was the catalyst and a creative juggernaut of the post-punk era, behind the U.K. music explosion of the late ’70s through the ’90s with groups like Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays leading the New Wave. At Factory, musicians and designers commingled creatively, with innovators such as Peter Saville, Den Kelly, Mark Farrow, 8VO, and Barbara Kruger elevating album covers to a new art form. The label broke further ground when it opened its own disco, the legendary Hacienda.
