Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

Soon after they formed in 2008, London’s enigmatic trio Factory Floor garnered comparisons to post-punk and industrial greats like Joy Division and Throbbing Gristle. The group’s first lineup featured drummer/vocalist Gabriel Gurnsey, keyboardist/bassist/vocalist Dominic Butler, and guitarist/percussionist Mark. From their debut single, the limited-release Bipolar, it was clear that their abrasive yet hypnotic and even danceable music was very different than that of other groups inspired by the post-punk era. Late in 2008, Factory Floor released the Planning Application EP, which took six weeks to record and featured Nikki Colk, formerly of Kaito UK, on guest vocals. Early in 2009, Colk joined the group as a full-time member. That year, the Japanese release Talking on Cliffs arrived, and the band supported the Horrors on their Primary Colours U.K. tour and Psychic TV on selected gigs. After signing to Blast First, the band’s busy 2010 included the March release of the Lying single, which featured a remix of their song “Wooden Box” by Joy Division/New Order drummer Stephen Morris. Later that spring, they opened for Liars on the U.K. dates of their Sisterworld tour, and released their critically acclaimed debut mini-album, Untitled, in May. That September, they contributed a remix to Grinderman’s second album, and that winter, they played All Tomorrow’s Parties’ first New Year’s Eve celebration along with the likes of Sonic Youth and Shellac.

Interview: Factory Floor

By Luke Turner, Contributor

When Factory Floor emerged, back in 2008, with clanking robot arpeggios, iron-filing noise and steelwork beats, the ready money might have been on a short life for the trio. Dominic Butler, Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Colk Void made music so intense, the tension at their gigs so palpable that it seemed likely that they would implode before they ever released a record. Yet, against all odds, they found a place to hole up, a warehouse… more »

Black Plastic’s Guide to DFA 12-Inches

By Adam Russell, Contributor

When we think of DFA, we think immediately of founder and former LCD Soundystem frontman James Murphy, along with the label's big-ticket acts like the Juan Maclean and The Rapture. But behind these indie titans are a number of fantastic 12" releases that often slip out with little attention. DFA and James Murphy have been a massive influence on me and my blog since "Losing My Edge" first came out. Here I select five of… more »
