Following the critical and commercial success of Strut's first trawl through the Factory Records archives, it's no surprise to see a second selection hitting the shelves. This time round, former Factory Benelux man James Nice takes over from Bill Brewster as curator. It's an inspired choice. While Brewster's selection touched on both well-known classics and little-known gems, Nice has largely steered clear of the obvious. As a result, FAC Dance 02 is a mine of little-known gems, from the bizarre Arabic disco of Fadela and post-punk voodoo of Biting Tongues, to the smoky dancefloor dub of Sir Horatio and vintage synth weirdness of Ad Infinitum.
