Boomkat Product Review:
The definitive manc banger, remastered for the first time from the original tapes, bulit to last.
Having witnessed Moodymann deploying this one at the end of a delirious, super slow set with the Three Chairs in Sheffield about two decades ago, we can personally testify that - just when you think you have it sussed - Blue Monday pops up in another entirely different context to fuck with you.
It’s the biggest selling 12” single of all time in the UK, pretty much bankrupting Factory because it cost more to make than they were charging thanks to its fancy die cut sleeve and Tony Wilson's irrepresible spirit / inompetence. Classic setup; the more you sell, the more money you lose - the most manc thing ever?
