Moves Like You


Factory Friday. Reader Michael recently got in touch. He kindly pointed me in the direction of some mp3s he had of various cassettes that came with Select magazine, including the Factory Records one (which had the honour of a Factory catalogue number, FAC 305c. These things matter.) Two of the songs on the tape are by Factory legend Cath Carroll. Originally a member of Manchester's punk band Glass Animals, later renamed Gay Animals, they had the intention of being 'the lesbian Rolling Stones'. To a bit more acclaim she formed Miaow who were on the famous NME indie compilation c86 (possibly at least partly through her connections as an NME writer). Miaow signed to Factory in 1987 but disbanded a year later. Cath recorded a solo album for Factory- England Made Me released in 1991. This song is a lovely piece of indie-electropop. Tony Wilson always said she should have been a massive star.

Michael has links for the full Factory cassette, the Secret Tracks compilation and the Creation one too. I'll check to see if he doesn't mind you having a look at them. Sharing is caring.
