“Stock Aitken Waterman sold records by the millions, created new stars and changed the face of pop music. It was no wonder the rest of the music industry and pop media called us a ‘Hit Factory’, a label that was later taken up by Pete Waterman to promote us.”

S/A/W became known as the ‘Hit Factory’, producing and recording more than 100 Top 40 singles during the 1980s – a claim that even The Beatles, did not achieve.

Mike Stock, one third of the British Hit Factory Stock/Aitken/Waterman reveals his story behind one of Europe's most sucessful production and songwriting partnership.

Published to commemorate the 20th anniversary of SAW's first major hit, The Hit Factory is a story which Mike says ‘puts the recording machine on pause and sets the record straight’.

Matt Aitken, Pete Waterman, Mike Stock

Mike Stock, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman notched up over 60 UK Top Ten singles, including 13 UK Number Ones as a trio, with an impressive stable of artists, including Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Rick Astley and Bananarama.

The Hit Factory is Mike Stock’s story of how it all came together – about a lot of fun, hard work and innocent dreams, the personalities behind the scenes and the stars whose hits lit up the charts. But it’s also a story about the dark side of the industry…

It is candid, revealing and sometimes shocking, exploring uncharted territory and exploding the myths about a seemingly jolly scenario.
