Was started by the originators of 'Schism', which are based in Woking. Unfortunately the setlist from Woking didn't translate well down here and this combined with poor and limited publicity saw it get low numbers. Eventually the night dropped from weekly to Monthly. The night was then taken over by the guys responsible for Jimmyz and the Dungeon amongst others. Unfortunately despite new DJ's and a new approach the night has remained poorly attended. Most likley because of its location in 'Townie' central, and because of the bad taste the original Schism left in peoples mouths. When the venue (Bliss) forced a move to Thursdays (in direct competition with the long running and established Scandals. A fight it was never going to win), it ineffect signed the nights own Death certificate. Its a sad end to yet another night which had good intentions but was given little chance to suceed. The last 'Faction' is scheduled for 17th March 2005.

I'd just like to point out I had nothing to do with Jimmyz or the Dungeon apart from drinking there. The move to thursdays was also, not forced...;)
