FACT 76 The Jazz Defektors Film 
FAC 76 The Jazz Defektors Film

The Jazz Defektors Film was an eight minute video which in its original edit was intended to be released on with a "FACT 76" title card. That never happened but the film was released as part of the FACT 137 Shorts compilation video under the title 'Hanki Panki' (but without the FACT 76 title). A YouTube clip includes the FAC 76 catalogue number and uses the spelling "JAZZ DEFECTORS".

This handwritten outline comes from the AHW archive at MSI Manchester and represents a pretty faithful description of the eventual video. It can be briefly summarised as three groups assembling in different areas of Manchester before congregating at FAC 51 The Hacienda for a "dance-off" in a West Side Story homage.

The "FAC 79" numbering on this note is incorrect or may have just been a typo. FAC 79 is allocated to Quando Quango's Love Tempo. FACX 79 is the 1979 Christmas present (a set of earplugs in a small red box). The Jag referred to here was Tony Wilson's Mark II Jaguar. Shirley Scott originally performed this piece as "Hanky Panky" in 1973.
