Apologies if mentioned above, but as a sad Factory obsessive I feel it would be rude not to mention the label's sole example of the genre:

X-O-Dus - English Black Boys/See Them A Come 12"

Produced by Denis Bovell, lovely Peter Saville sleeve, lyrics about Martin Webster (then a leading light in the National Front, kind of the equivalent of that nice Mr Griffin these days).

Do the Slits count?


Yeah that was an OK-ish reggae 12" -- think I liked the cover art better than the record, though. Yeah from what I heard that band went though alot of racism in the Manchester scene at the time...
