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….)
