An iconic image. Factory runs through the veins of the city. It's provided or influenced the soundtrack to the city, from the bands -  Joy Division, New Order, ACR, Durutti Column, Happy Mondays, Northside, James and OMD; to the Hacienda, Dry Bar, the film '24 Hour Party People'; and the current club FAC251 in the old Factory Records HQ.
