The Russell Club on Royce Road also played host to Tony Wilson's Factory nights at weekends. In later life The Russell was taken over by a collective of bus drivers and renamed the PSV (Public Service Vehicle), but remained informally known as The Russell. This is the famous 'Factory 1' poster designed by Peter Saville, complete with spelling mistakes.

COMMENTS

Wayne SAYS –

I loved the russell Club Mat, saw many a great band there, including the Cure when a 3 piece and the human league origional line up with slide show (being boiled era). Undertones and too many more to mention, john cooper clarke was class there!

mat SAYS –

i have a flyer for the cure at the factory- i'll try and dig it out and upload it. i never went to the russell club. the psv i went to many times and also what it was called before - was it 'the tropical club' or something?

jsz SAYS –

wasn't it The Caribbean Club for a while?
