Factory Australasia, 1980 - 1990

The Factory history in Australia starts October 1979 with a company named GAP Records, founded by Paul Gardener and British born Andrew Penhallow (GAP = G ardener A nd P enhallow), licensing (among others) Factory releases for Australia. GAP itself is signed to EMI Australia Ltd., doing the manufacturing and distribution.

The way the Australian releases are made is by Factory UK sending 1/4 inch master tapes (and later digital masters) and original artwork to Australia, where then the vinyl and the sleeves are produced. The GAP catalogue system for singles is based on a compromise between GAP and EMI: GAP could define the prefix and EMI allocated their generic number. SFA stands for Single Factory Australia. For LPs the initial idea for a prefix was "FACTOR" but was then dropped in favour of "FACOZ".

Although having everything in place by the end of 1980, the first releases are in February 1981. Apparently this was due to the generic EMI artwork which had to be finalised by Penhallow first.

In 1982, after expiry of a two year contract and dissatisfied with the ever expanding "independent" labels department within EMI, GAP decides to change distribution to CBS Records Australia Ltd. (however, distribution in New Zealand and South East Asia, remained with EMI). All releases follow the UK numbering system from this point on.

Around the same time, GAP extended their operations to New Zealand, taking over from RTC. The first GAP release in New Zealand, however, was Blue Monday in 1983, which went gold there.

Despite already set up in 1984, July 1985 is the official start of Factory Records Australasia, now headed by Andrew Penhallow only. GAP Records Australia and New Zealand are merged into the new company. Factory Records Australasia soon becomes Factory's most successful foreign offshoot with a number of singles and albums reaching into the Australian Top 20, Top 10 and even Top 5 charts. All Factory Australasia records and three CD's (sharing a generic CBS number) are manufactured and distributed by CBS. All other CD's were imported.

1990 sees the demise of Factory Australasia, mainly because Factory headquarters in Manchester want to secure a better commercial backing (with obviously higher advances) through a major label. Factory boss Tony Wilson travels to Sydney and, together with Penhallow, negotiations are held with several Australian based labels. Eventually, Festival Records Pty Ltd. makes the highest offer and so the entire catalogue moves to the Sydney based company, starting with production in June 1990. Festival re-issues every Australian Factory record released so far and continues with the new Factory releases (except for Electronic), using their own numbering system. Andrew Penhallow stays in a 'caretaker' role with the new Factory/Festival arrangement until 1992, and then concentrates on his own label Volition (also founded in 1984 and focussed on Australian acts), which also becomes a sought after Australian classic. Andrew is still very active in the Australian and international music business.

Notes: 
- Andrew Penhallow:"The first promo video we got from Factory was 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' which I had to re-edit. 
  They sent me the footage but the sound was out of sync. They couldn't get it right. As we were in the Top 20 we wanted something for TV in OZ. 
  I spent an afternoon at a video facility with an editor and re-stripped the sound off the master and edited the vision to fit - there are some 
  jerky edits but it improved it enough to get TV coverage here. In fact, Factory used the version on one of the JD video releases and on UK TV."
