Movie of the Week: Umbrellas in The Sun - A Crepuscule / Factory Benelux Collection

Following the posting this week of Donald Johnson (A Certain Ratio)'s Stupefied Playlist, let's stick with the Factory Records vibe for the first MOTW for the weekend.

Here's Umbrellas In The Sun - an incredible collection of bands from the Crepuscule, Benelux & Factory loose family of labels. This collection wouldn't otherwise ever be possible without the hard & obsessive work of labels like LTM, so go buy a copy of this, or any of their DVD comps, now!

Umbrellas in the Sun borrows its title from the 1981 video compilation of the same name released by Belgian label, Les Disques du Crepuscule (TWI 099), and features selected clips from that project, as well as clips from A Factory Video (Fact 65), A Factory Complication (FBN 7) and A Factory Outing (Fact 71) plus previously unseen material. Featuring cover art by Crepuscule design director Benoit Hennebert, the DVD contains 23 rare clips filmed between 1979 and 1987 and runs for over 2 hours.  The definitive genre document!
