Here's my list of high quality lossless live and demo recordings of former Factory Records artists. I've built up this collection over 25 years and have converted it all to digital format from the old tapes. The list is purely for reference purposes, but if you think you may have something of interest to me, then get in touch and perhaps I can share some of my archive with you.
My days of trading old recordings are virtually over, but if something grabs your attention and you have something in return, let me know. Where possible ftp exchange of lossless FLAC files is my preferred method of trade. CDR's are ok where bandwidth is limited, MP3 files are a big no-no!!
None of these archives is for sale, so any trades must not be resold on eBay or any other site.
With respect to artists & tapers wishes, not all listed shows are available for trade, please ask for details.
Request a Sample!
Maybe you want to hear a sample of a particular show? Just email me, I may be persuaded to upload a snippet or two! I just know somebody wants to hear Alan Hempshall's spectacular performance as Ram Ram Kino at the Hacienda Battle of the Bands in 1984.
I intend to update this list as I find stuff or from what others send me. I'll also continue to add audio snippets from the archive, so please check back regularly or subscribe to the feed below.
