The band formed in 2005, originally comprising Gabriel Gurnsey and Mark Harris, who were then joined by Dominic Butler. Harris later left, and they were joined by Nik Colk (aka Nik Colk Void), formerly of KaitO, in 2010. Gurnsey plays Drums, Drum machines, Butler plays Modular synths and electronics and Colk adds manipulated vocals, guitar and samples.
After two singles in 2008, and a mini-album, Talking On Cliffs in 2009, the band signed to Blast First’s ‘Blast First Petite’ label, releasing several twelve-inch singles, including “Wooden Box”, featuring a Stephen Morris remix, and an untitled ten-inch mini-LP in 2010. The latter was described by the NME as “a terrifying racket that simultaneously frazzles the nerves and slackens the bowels” and “an incessant drone of keyboards wired through twisted-metal synthesizers and thundering drums summoned from the heavens”
The band approached Morris by sending him a CD and asking if he would do a remix. After remixing “Wooden Box”, Morris went on to work with the band as producer.
Two twelve-inch releases followed featuring remixes by Stephen Morris and Chris Carter. Since then Factory Floor have released “(R E A L L O V E)” (Optimo), and “Two Different Ways” on DFA Records.
In 2011 the band played a support slot for Chris & Cosey at the ICA and Chris Carter joined the band later that year for two performances: Primavera Sound and the Roundhouse.
Colk Void released a single, “Gold E”, under the name Nik Colk Void in February 2012.
“Fall Back”, the first single off their upcoming debut album, was released on 14th January 2013.
