Factory Releases/Rough Trade Releases...

Does anyone here collect Factory Releases and/or Rough Trade Releases?

If so, what is your best source for collecting and is there a complete listing of these releases on the Internet, per se?

I have the Rough Trade book & I use that as a main reference for my collection but, I'm asking if there's anything else "better" out there.

I do have 2 books likewise, on the Factory scene but, I'm looking for a complete listing of all LPs released on this label.

Thanks so much in advance for any information you could link me with.

Hi Mozzy1 I don't 'collect' any of their releases, but I also have both books. I was lucky to have come across them at one time. The Factory book is clearly an art book, even though my favorite's the Rough Trade one. I wonder if they'll continue with the series on record labels. I do tend to collect books on music though. I have an obscure (here in the States anyway) book called 'Then, now and rare British Beat 60-69'. Bigger but similar to the Rough Trade one, but more gorgeously laid out.

Do you like The Wake, by any chance? Also, I wouldn't think you'd have to look past the Factory book for the complete discography.

I've heard of them. I'll check them out. What do you recommend by them?

I go to this record shop in my county here. They have literally EVERYTHING. I just went there on Sunday & I found some old JD vinyls & picked up a couple of other band's vinyls too. They track it all by this HUGE database system where everything is barcoded with a link. I love it there even though, I have to pay to park.

The Rough Trade things are more "easier" to locate than the Factory stuff, but, it's the fun of the research & getting what I've searched for is the best of it all.

What other bands are you into?
