The Ultimate Salute to Factory Records and Its Founder

I have been meaning to post about this for several months ago. Tony Wilson, Factory Records founder  gravestone has finally been completed no less by the artistic team who helped shape the look of his releases. It took three years but I can't imagine a more fitting tribute to the man.

For those who label freaks and design nerds who were oddly disappointed that his headstone doesn't carry a Factory release catalog number, Wilson's funereal casket has a solid silver plate that reads Anthony H. Wilson  / FAC 501.
