THEY PUT THE FUNK IN FACTORY

A Certain Ratio were also responsible for the first ever release on Factory Benelux/Les Disques du Crépuscule back in August 1980 with a song that bemused everyone who had considered everyone on, and involved with, the parent label to be doom merchants:-

mp3 : A Certain Ratio – Shack Up

Here’s some other singles from their time on Factory which ended in 1986 although they would continue recording and performing for a number of labels for many more years to come.

mp3 : A Certain Ratio – Knife Slits Water (12″)
mp3 : A Certain Ratio – I Need Someone Tonite (12″)
mp3 : A Certain Ratio – Mickey Way (The Candy Bar) (12″)

You can tell they are a band I don’t actually know that much about!!  Anyone care to offer up some words and tunes via an ICA? (I’m thinking and looking at you Swiss Adam….the fount of all Mancunian knowledge….)

  1. I will also take that challenge up! Thank you JC for adding to the continuing riches of ACR appreciation.

  2. Pity it’s that particular date…..already committed to something else (not related at all to music) this coming Saturday.
