Album artwork for Of Factory New York by Various

Factory Benelux and New Order present 'Of Factory New York', a unique benefit album released to assist Michael Shamberg, who ran the NYC office of Factory Records during the celebrated label's Eighties heyday. Available on CD and double gatefold vinyl formats, 'Of Factory New York' gathers a selection of classic tracks by artists associated with OFNY including the John Robie remix of 'Yashar' by Cabaret Voltaire, 'Do the Du' by A Certain Ratio, 'Cool As Ice' by 52nd Street, 'Love Tempo' by Quando Quango, the Megamix version of 'Looking From A Hilltop' by Section 25 and an exclusive version of 'Your Silent Face' by New Order, recorded live on tour in America in June 1989. Homegrown American talent featured on the album includes Ike Yard, Thick Pigeon, Konk, Anna Domino and deejay / producer Arthur Baker. The cover art is based on an original 1983 design by Lawrence Weiner, the conceptual artist closely associated with Shamberg and Factory's Big Apple operation. Unfortunately in 2006 Michael was struck down with highly debilitating mitochondrial disease. All artists featured on 'Of Factory New York' have donated their work free of charge, Factory Benelux will take no profit, and 100% of net revenues will be paid over to the medical trust which takes care of Michael.
