Here's your chance to win two splendid Factory Records boxed sets of postcards and badges courtesy of those lovely people at Polite Cards and Factory Editions.

The Factory Records Postcard Set1978-82 contains 25 postcards documenting the early era of the label. This lovingly put together set was released late last year and was accompanied by 3 enamel badges which earlier this year were given the boxed set treatment too. Factory Records Enamel Badges 2013 contains both black and red versions of a FAC 120 reproduction plus a new badge based on the FAC 47 anvil logo.

Both boxed sets are styled on the classic Factory Records boxed cassette series in complementary grey tones and retail at 25.00 GBP each via Polite.

In order to win one of each boxed set, all you have to do is answer this simple question:

What is the typeface used on the boxes used for the original Factory "hessian" cassette box series and the new Polite sets?

Answers please by email to reach us no later than 22:00 GMT on Sunday 12 May 2013. Usual Cerysmatic Factory competition rules apply - only one entry per person and the winner will be pulled out the Cerysmatic hat shortly after the closing deadline.

Good luck!

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
