Scarce poster issued by the short lived Factory New York arm set up by Wilson with Michael Shamberg at the helm. Factory NY was built with funds from the success of Joy Division, but declined and untimately ceased operation a few years later due to the disasterous Hacienda back in Manchester sucking up all the money. During the time Factory NY operated, a number of singles were issued, and concerts organised (most notable New Order at The Paradise Garage). The visual identity was a little more fluid than the UK operation, with numerous artists contributing to sleeves and posters. This poster was for sale directly from Factory NY, and is textbook Kruger. Jonathan Demme’s Perfect Kiss video, produced by Shamberg, seems quite unique and distinct for both Factory and New Order.
