De Fabriek began in 1977 as a collective project. Their goal was to do minimal experimental music. You could see this minimal thing in the products themselves - Limited copies with special packages. Recorded in 1981 and released a year later, this is one of the earliest tapes by Richard van Dellen's multi-faceted and extremely prolific De Fabriek.

De Fabriek (The Factory) hails from the Dutch City of Zwolle and original founded by Richard van Dellen and Andries D. Eker at the end of the seventies. Now the spil are Richard van Dellen, Louise Manuru van Dellen (his wife) and Simone van Dellen (his daughter). Not considering themselves a regular band (for one thing, they are a label too) they present The Factory as some sort of workmen-union, and the musicians they work with as labourers. Music is created through workman tools and machinery. Throughout years they were recording with the likes of Solenoid (2), O.R.D.U.C., Technological Aquiver, Brume, Vivenza, Klinik, and Gen Ken Montgomery.
