Based in Los Angeles, Factory were together for less than 3 years, from 1985 to 1987. They were considered industrial noise, or, just noise at times, and were known for playing, in unique locations — including an abandoned loading dock where the LA Times building now exists. They often hauled a truckload of metal objects to shows — in addition to their traditional guitar (Wrex Mock), drum kit (Dave Williams) and bass (Andy Jenkins). It was not rare to see the Factory members fall into extended improve jams, and end performances pounding out improvised rhythms and noise from a discarded pile of air ducts, car bumpers and pipes, often joined by audience members. They were tossed from the infamous LA punk venue, the Anti Club, mid-performance for lighting the stage on fire with errant sparks from a buzz saw. Later that year, a gig on the rooftop of a 5-story abandoned downtown warehouse, was raided by the L.A.P.D.

There are only five (5) Factory recordings on vinyl; a 7" inch with blank labels, that featured "Rat Inside My Head," "Electric Buffalo,"and track 11," in addition, two songs were also recorded for a 12" vinyl compilation record, "Awaken," — all these tracks are available in this "Deluxe Factory Package." 3 attainable with a digital download code, and 2 on the 12" vinyl.

The Factory Tee is also available on its own elsewhere in the Bend Shop.
