This exhibition not to be mixed up with "New Order: Art, Product, Image 1976-1995" which I did a separate thread for. I paid that one a visit actually. Might stick a couple of photos on that thread when I get a moment.


EDIT - more links

CLICK 3 This in turn has a link that leads you to...

CLICK 4 Mmm, it looks sooo pretty.

Factory Records celebrates 40th anniversary with box-sets and major exhibitions
John Earls Aug 6, 2019 9:06 am BST

Legendary record company Factory Records is celebrating its 40th anniversary with two box-sets and two major exhibitions devoted to the label.

Factory was home to bands such as Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays, James and The Durutti Column.

The first box-set, ‘Use Hearing Protection’, compiles the first 10 records and memorabilia to receive a Factory Records catalogue number. The second box, ‘Factory: Communications 1978-1992’, features 63 songs from Factory’s 15-year history.

One exhibition, also titled Use Hearing Protection, is at Chelsea Space from September 13-October 25. It features exhibitions of the first 50 items until 1982 with a Factory catalogue number, including works by Joy Division, New Order, A Certain Ratio and The Durutti Column, as well as Factory’s acclaimed designer Peter Saville. Entry is free.

An expanded version of the Use Hearing Protection exhibition will open in July next year. It’s currently being developed by The Science And Industry Museum in Manchester.

The 10 items in the ‘Use Hearing Protection’ box-set include Joy Division’s classic album ‘Unknown Pleasures’. Given the catalogue number Fact10, the album recently reached No 5 when it was reissued separately. The other records are successful ’80s band OMD’s single ‘Electricity’, ‘All Night Party’ by Factory staples A Certain Ratio and ‘The Factory Sample EP’ featuring various Factory artists including Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, John Dowie and The Durutti Column.

It also contains three Factory posters, including FAC1, which was a poster advertising the label. FAC8 was a Factory Records egg timer, represented in the box-set as an A4 art print. The box is limited to 4,000 copies.

Bonus items in ‘Use Hearing Protection’ are a 2CD interview with Joy Division and Factory founder Tony Wilson by journalist Mary Harron in 1979, plus a previously-unreleased 12″ single, ‘Big Noise From The Jungle’ by The Tiller Boys. The box-set is released on October 11.

The second box-set, ‘Factory: Communications 1978-92’ was originally released as a 4CD-set in 2009. It will now be available as an 8LP vinyl box. It includes hits ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by Joy Division, New Order’s ‘Temptation’, ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Confusion’, ‘True Faith’ and ‘World In Motion’, James’ ‘Hymn From A Village’, Electronic’s ‘Getting Away With It’ and Happy Mondays’ ‘Step On’, ‘WFL’ and ’24 Hour Party People’. It’s released on November 8, with sleevenotes by Paul Morley and James Nice.

The box-sets are available to pre-order here

Man, I want one. Looks so nice.

Although the 'physical' items are probably most people's 'must have' items, I'm more interested by the 2 CDs of interviews with JD and the 'No City Fun' film on DVD.

Very tempted by this. £180 though. Bloody Hell. :-(

I know. Makes me feel that I can't not get this.

Chances are, I'll drag my feet and by the time I pre-order, they'll have sold out.

If this was a JD / NO set, no question - I'd buy it. But I'm really only interested in the JD interviews and (especially) 'No City Fun'.
I don't really care about the other material. Well, not '£180 care' anyway.

I just wish they'd release the CD / DVD material separately. Or, better still, release it on a JD box set, along with the Whitehead movie and all the video material of the band. Now that's something I wouldn't hesitate to spend some serious notes on.

Following Old Blue's new thread just now... This thread was originally started to let people know about that exibition at Chelsea Space, but I think the two box sets (one of which directly relates to this) kinda distracted people from the exhibition in the first link at the top of the thread.
To answer Old Blue's question, I haven't been yet, but I just might. Apparently Stephen & Gillian have:

The No City Fun film is available for viewing at the 'Use Hearing Protection' exhibition, Chelsea Space. It's played on a loop on a TV and there are a couple of head phones so two people can listen at once. If you can make it down there, it's a more affordable way of seeing the film.

The Box is a limited run of 4,000 which given the price (I would guess) is unlikely to sell out any time soon. I'm not aware of anyone who has ordered this and I know a lot of keen Factory enthusiasts. The price is the objection which everyone is throwing out. I'm prepared to bide my time and see if the price drifts south after the release date. If Fac 9 or the JD interview CD pop up on the web in the mean time then I will abandon any thoughts of buying it.

I should add that the Joy Division element of Fac 9 is not being shown at Chelsea Space, its the rest of the footage featuring ACR, Ludus and No City Fun which is screened. So the wait goes on...

The ACR and Ludus stuff couldn't be found, it's just City Fun isn't it?

Anyone visited usehearingprotection.com recently? Scroll down to the bottom and click exhibition. Voila: FAC 1 to 50 as covered by the Exhibition: each has its own picture and blurb underneath. So it’s a sort of virtual exhibition for those unable to attend in person.

I actually did attend on Friday afternoon, shortly before closing time, so I had to be quick. Fortunately the place was completely empty bar the staff, so no one slowed me down. I didn’t have time to watch the video stuff though.

The exhibition is primarily in one room. You effectively enter through the gift shop, walk up a long ramp with some exhibit-related posters on it, and then into the room. JD and Durutti Column were playing on the speakers (maybe it was the box set?). Ironically I didn't pay much attention to the music!
I took some pics but I won’t bother with too many of the Fac 1 to 50 pics as you can see better ones on the above website link. Some posters/adverts/books/notebooks made up the additional material at the exbibition that aren't covered above, so I’ll focus on those.

Having said that, contradiction time: Here’s FAC1:
UserPostedImage
This was at the top of the walking-ramp just as you turn into the main room. The other posters in the ramp area that I kinda ignored were:
1) Poster for the Sex Pistols at Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall 20/07/1978
2) Poster: Shimmy...Joy Division July, 1979. Designed by Jon Savage
3) Poster: with detail from Le Retour de la colonne Durutti. Produced by Tony Wilson
4) Poster: the Factory Fridays at the Russell Club, 1979
5) Poster: A Certain Ratio/Durutti Column/Blurt, 1980. Designed by Jon Savage

And here's contradiction number two of my "no Facs" plan: FAC2:

And here's... FAC26 which doesn't have a picture on the website for some reason, so you may as well have a look here.
On the bottom left you can see the "(No) City Fun" video screen reflecting off the glass frame. The window and the overhead lights made it quite tricky to take pictures of framed stuff, or stuff under glass without getting reflections.

Some of this stuff from here on, I'll let you figure out yourselves.

FAC8 The Factory "egg timer" appeared to be written/drawn directly on the wall

Use your wits or use the bus. Admission £2.

The gift shop (aka The Reading Room) was the exit as well as the entrance.
Lots of merch for sale. The only things I could clearly see a price on were the pencils and keyrings. With each of those selling at £5 a pop, I didn't bother enquiring about the other stuff.
UserPostedImage
UserPostedImage
Should I recognise the red Factory keyring logo?

I think I see some JD UP vinyl down the bottom right here, stacked flat. Which is how you get warped vinyl. Tut tut.
UserPostedImage

The lower right of this pic has Factory packing/duct tape! Just what you always wanted.
UserPostedImage

Makes me wonder if there's a NO/JD fan out there who has everything from a FAC1 poster, the JD/NO records, through to pencils and Factory branded tape.

There were a couple of other display bits in the gift shop area which I didn't snap. Such as a letter from Tony Wilson to Rob Gretton, 9th May,1978, and Rob Gretton's copy of Internationale Sittuationniste 11.

Oh now a couple of "bonus tracks":
These two posters weren't at Chelsea Space (which is confusingly, in Pimlico), these were in actual Chelsea at a Rave Exhibition in Saatchi Galleries during the summer. Not sure why they were there (along with Visage and Test Dept). Surely a Hacienda poster, or something Technique related would have been more appropriate. Overall it was a fun Rave exhibition though!
