New Order weren’t the only folks putting out 12-inches on the label their sales more or less financed. Factory Dance collects two-and-a-half hours’ worth of rarities by cult faves such as the Durutti Column and Section 25. Sometimes it got weirdly funky, such as on the huffing-sax-a-thon “Puppeteer” by Blurt, or the Royal Dirt Family and the Poor’s tracks. Electronics had their say (the “New York Mix” of Quando Quango’s “Atom Rock”), of course. But everything seems up for grabs.
