First off all you can find label histories of Les Disques Du Crepuscule, Factory and Factory Benelux. These were originally written for magazines: NME (UK), Record Collector (UK) and Magic (Fr), but reworked for this site.
Then you can glance through what is very likely the most comprehensive Crepuscule discography ever compiled (once described by the NME as "solving the mystery of the Marie Celeste"). There are separate discographies of all Crepuscule's sister- and sub-labels, such as Operation Twilight, Crepuscule Au Japon and Interior Music. A LTM/Boutique discog is also included.
Next are the Factory and Crepuscule Image Banques.
Alan Hempsall's legendary Joy Division interview, from January 1980, can be found here too, and there also is an exclusive, intrigueing article on early Factory Records by Howard Slater, which is both a personal and theoretical attempt to get to grips with his obsessions about Factory's early years. Slater even managed to persuade Karl Marx to review Joy Division's Closer.
Please note that both Les Disques Du Crepuscule and Factory Benelux are operated from LTM Headquarters in the UK.
