Crazy wisdom

Not so long ago the Factory fan behind The construction in hand moved to Amsterdam.  He has cunningly used this relocation to perform the conceptual act of writing about the entire Factory Benelux catalogue from within the ‘Ne’ of Benelux.  While eating space cake and drinking Westmalle.  The three-part result is unusual for a sustained piece of music criticism in that even as it imparts notes on the cultural education that can be achieved by paying close attention to sleeves, inspirations and lyrics, it is also very funny.  Though the comedy is probably enhanced if you happen to be a Factory nut too.

The excellent Memory lapses are also well worth reading.
