The Crepuscule and Factory Pages
optimised for screen size 800 x 600 | small font


This site tells about the eclectic Les Disques Du Crepuscule from Brussels and the mythical Factory label from Manchester, and their countless connections.

poster (57cm x 96cm) by benoît hennebert for a concert in brussels, friday may 15 1981. You can find here label histories of Les Disques Du Crepuscule, Factory and Factory Benelux. These were originally written for the magazines New Musical Express (UK), Record Collector (UK) and Magic (Fr) in the early 1990's.

Then you can glance through what is the most comprehensive Crepuscule discography ever compiled (once described by New Musical Express 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, Another Side, L.A.Y.L.A.H., Interior Music, Dancyclopedia and Pretty Inside. It is self-evident that a LTM/Boutique discography is also featured.

Finally there are the Factory and Crepuscule Image Banques.

Please note that both Les Disques Du Crepuscule and Factory Benelux are nowadays operated from LTM Headquarters in the UK.
