Our heroes 
A chance listen of the podcast of the Jonathan Ross Radio 2 show from Saturday 26 January revealed an interesting Factory Records-related gem.

Thom Yorke of Radiohead was one of the special guests and the topic of conversation turned to In Rainbows and the manner of its release on the internet as an official pay-as-much-or-as-little-as-you-like download. Ross said how much he liked the disc box version (the 40 pound-odd all-formats version with full packaging) and remarked how it reminded him of "the good old days of Factory Records who always used to come up with loads of extra bits and pieces". To which Thom Yorke replied "They're our heroes, Factory, and Warp Records".
