    if only the ratio of Miaow and Happy Mondays tracks were reversed (granted, that might end up being ALL the released Miaow tracks, including ones not on Factory, but there is supposed to be an unreleased album out there…)

  2. 10:02am

    No Ike Yard?

  3. Dickdogfood

    Will this be FAC 512?

  4. Ned Raggett

    Including Crawling Chaos — nice.

    I wonder if they’re just going to rely on the LTM Recordings remasterings for the non-JD/NO/Happy Mondays stuff.

  5. the rich girls are weeping

    Seriously, that is a lot of Happy Mondays. Like, perhaps too much. What a strange assortment of odds and ends. Here’s hoping the liner notes gloss reasons behind the track selection? PAGING PAUL MORLEY.

    (Oh. Hahah. He IS doing the liner notes!!)

    Wait, Jon Savage curated the selection, but Morley’s writing the liner notes? That’s weird.

    They’ve left off Thick Pigeon.

    Oh well, its not like I had the money to spend on it anyway…

  7. 10:02am

    You can just throw that fourth disc right in the trash can’t you

  8. moomintroll

    @10:02am: What, and miss out on the the John Barnes rap on “World In Motion”? Never!

  9. Dick Laurent is dead.

    Musically I have no reason to buy this, ‘cept “Freaky Dancin”…but I am a sucker for Saville and good writing about Factory. I agree there’s too much Mondays on here though, I wrote them off after “Bummed” to be honest.

  10. DocStrange

    This pleases me. @Dickdogfood: Wasn’t FAC 512 Tony Wilson’s casket?

    This is a nice tracklisting. I already own most of this stuff (yes, even The Other Two. “Tasty Fish” is a fantastic song) but i’ll buy it for the stuff i don’t.

  11. Dan Gibson

    @everyone dissing the Mondays: Heretics.

  12. the rich girls are weeping

    @Dan Gibson: I’m doing the Bez dance in your general direction.

  13. mike a

    Other than a nice Seville cover, what does this offer that the Palatine box set didn’t?

  15. hndinglove

    also, only one Stockholm Monsters track? travesty.

    i already own New Order/Joy Division’s discography like, three times over, so this set is pretty meh.

  16. CloudCarrier

    I’d click yes if only for a good remastering job, as even the post-Palatine discs I never stopped spinning (Too Young To Know, To Wild To Care & Different Colours, Different Shades on London in the mid-90′s) sourced their material from vinyl, specifically for that tasty Crawling Chaos track, and even the Quando Quango if I’m not mistaken. I should just be thankful that a legit version of Marcel King’s “Reach Out For Love” will be available again for all my nieces and nephews to buy for a few bucks, eventually, right? Shaun probably owns the rights to it by now, anyway.

    Actually, if this includes one photo of Mark Robinson’s bedroom ca. 1989, I will buy it immediately.

    Only ONE song from the Mondays’ “Yes, Please”?!?!?. This is insufficient tribute to Shaun Ryder’s legendary Barbadian crack jag, the binge that killed the great label.

  18. westartedthis

    you obviously can’t make a factory records comp without joy division. but doesn’t everyone who would want to buy this already own JD’s complete discography, including rarities, possibly several times over? i balk at re-buying a bunch of joy division songs.

    Beyond no Thick Pigeon (‘Subway’ would be a perfect disc closer), where the hell is Antena? What Swamp Children track can top ‘Achilles’? I mean, sure, it’s on Crépuscule, but doesn’t Factory Benelux count for something? No respect for the Belgians…

  20. BenRad

    Hopefully Rhino will fuck this up as badly as they fucked up the New Order reissues and I won’t have to buy this either. BAH!
