About This Item

Manchester: Factory Benelux, 1985. Vintage poster for the 1985 Stockholm Monsters single, designed by Trevor Johnson for Factory Records and released by Factory Records Belgian imprint Factory Benelux.

The Stockholm Monsters were an integral but often overlooked part of the Manchester/Factory Records scene of the early 1980s. Their highest-charting single, "How Corrupt is Rough Trade?" was an experimental and aggressive attack on Factory Records' then-distributor Rough Trade Records. After several line-up changes the band parted company in 1987.

Manchester designer Trevor Johnson was instrumental in the design and branding of Factory Records as well as Factory's Hacienda Nightclub in the 1980s and 1990s. He formed the UK design studio Johnson/Panas with fellow designer Tony Panas in 1985.

15.75 x 23.5 inches. Very Good plus with some creasing along the right edge.
