je me souviens du label ROBS RECORDS de ROB GRETTON, manager de Joy Division et New Order. Il était également membre fondateur associé chez Factory Records, propriétaire du label Rob’s Records et l’un des co-fondateurs de l’Haçienda

28 Fév

Robs Records was the dance-tinged record label side project of the late Rob Gretton, the ex-manager of Joy Division and then New Order. It was run out of an address right next to Fac 51 The Hacienda, the club Rob had been instrumental in establishing. New artists such as the Beat Club, Mr Scruff and Sub Sub (who would later become Doves) were quickly signed up.
Robs also became the home for ex-Factory label industrial funksters A Certain Ratio (who released some of their best work during this time). In later years the subsidiary labels Pleasure Records and Manchester Records were established. Sadly Rob died in May 1999 and there were very few releases after this time.(source cerysmaticfactory)
