A few months ago, I told you about the then-upcoming 2-disc retrospective release of FAC. DANCE on Strut, a 24-track collection of rarities, remixes and 12″ mixes from the extremely innovative Manchester label’s past. Well, the collection is out now in both CD and vinyl formats and comes highly recommended for anyone interested in either the label’s scope, the production of one Martin Hannett or dance music in general; a time capsule to post Joy Division Factory, 80s New York club music and the blueprint for what would become the Madchester scene, these tracks definitely hold some weight. Of the artists included in the set are post punk funkers A Certain Ratio and in promoting the release, a rare music video for the song “Back To The Start” has surfaced. Watch it above.
