Shadowplayers: The Rise and Fall of Factory Records

'Shadowplayers: The Rise and Fall of Factory Records' celebrates the life of Factory Records and it was released earlier this year in May. The Author of this book is James Nice, a journalist and record-label owner. He once worked for Factory Benelux and now administers much of the former Factory catalogue. Based on both archive and contemporary sources, the book tells the full story of Factory's heroic struggles, its complex web of inventive, idiosyncratic and tragic personalities, and ultimately, the acclaimed and much-loved music it produced.
