Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays: Manchester-based, Factory Records bands who built careers by asserting that post-punk's rigor and austerity was not altogether different from disco's. This comp presumes that you already have the essential stuff and are ready for the B-sides. The obscurity of Quando Quango's "Love Tempo" is unjust; the obscurity of a "nitromix" for a band that released one single on the label is probably just natural selection.
