The final phase in ACR's studio album reissue series.
Sextet (1982) will be released on orange vinyl in textured sleeve replicating the original Factory release.
+ Indies only LP on orange vinyl.
This is the latest installment in an ongoing collaboration with Mute and follows the release of The Graveyard And The Ballroom, To Each, Force, acr:mcr and I'd Like To See You Again. Up In Downsville and the long out of print album Good Together are out on 25 May 2018.
A new compilation is out later in 2018 and 2019 sees various box sets to mark the 40th anniversary of the first releases by the band.
A Certain Ratio, known for their carnival atmosphere live performances have been playing blistering sold out shows throughout 2017 and 2018.
ACR live is Jez Kerr, Donald Johnson, Martin Moscrop, Denise Johnson, Tony Quigley and Matt Steele.
A Certain Ratio embraced the ethic and culture of the late seventies post-punk explosion, but sounded like nothing else around them and refused to fit in. Formed in 1978, the band had various members throughout their career, and a core line-up of Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson.
Hailed universally as pioneers of what became known as “punk funk” thanks to the success of ‘Shack Up’ on both sides of the Atlantic, their sound is not easily pigeon holed and their influence can never be understated. The band introduced the avant-garde elements of funk, jazz, electronics, tape loops and technology to the pop song, wrapping it in a post punk aesthetic, adding great clothes and the coolest haircuts.
They have gone on to influence generations of musicians - from LCD Soundsystem, Happy Mondays, Franz Ferdinand, ESG, Factory Floor and Andrew Weatherall.
A Certain Ratio + Mute = Good Together.
