FACT > “Sunshine & Love” (FAC 272) was the last record released by Factory; the label ceased operations two weeks after the single hit shops in November 1992. The US issue includes the unedited Dave Bascombe single remix—given the disturbing proliferation of gun-related violence plaguing Manchester at the time, the third verse with the line “So get me an Uzi and someone to use it who smiles” was removed from UK and EU releases. B-side aside: the Mondays’ version of “Staying Alive” is one of the coolest covers ever (and it was almost a single, allocated catalog number FAC 352).
