This is the latest instalment 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.

Mind Made Up (2008) – To date, this is A Certain Ratio’s last album release and one that sees them explore pop closer than ever before – short sharp bursts of classic singalong post pop-funk.

Sextet (1982) – Dark and brooding, yet bright and funky, Sextet is a firm favourite amongst the critics and saw A Certain Ratio refine the experimentation of the first two albums and deliver a masterpiece that is as off-kilter and weird as it is commercial and pop.

Change The Station (1986) – An abstract album that sees A Certain Ratio bring the funk to laid back ambience in a way that only they could. The party is still there and it’s more hypnotic than ever.

A new compilation will follow later in the year and 2019 will see 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, recently sold out dates have included London, Hebden Bridge (with Andrew Weatherall), Brighton and Newcastle. A new series of dates that have been announced that include Manchester and Edinburgh, with further dates to follow – full details below.

PRAISE FOR A CERTAIN RATIO

 Sextet was a visionary musical statement” – The Quietus

 “ … a very different kind of dance music, one that located funk’s heart of darkness” – CLASSIC POP

“Cult punk funkateers” – UNCUT

“…mould-breakers” – MOJO

Soulful, smooth and packed with proper anthems…” – The Vinyl Factory on Good Together

 

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 pigeonholed 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.

The Guardian’s Dave Simpson paid tribute to the band, once described as “James Brown on acid” in a recent Cult Heroes piece: “Once you start listening to A Certain Ratio, it’s difficult to stop”.
