Saville Show Support 
A whole raft of supporting events is scheduled to coincide with the Peter Saville Show's stint at Urbis in Manchester from 23 January and to 18 April 2004...

Made In Manchester - a series of design masterclasses with Trevor Johnson (Via Communications, ex-Johnson/Panas) and David Crow (Head of School of Design, Manchester Metropolitan University).

Creative City (Thursday 11 March 2004, 10am - 5pm) is for those looking for a career in the creative industries.

An Evening With Peter Saville (7.30-9pm, Wednesday/Thursday 24/25 March 2004) is a kind of reprise of the The Peter Saville Talkon 2 Sept 2003 from the London show: "On two exclusive dates you will have a chance to hear what inspires and motivates a design legend, as Saville discusses his work with Factory records to the state of graphic design today. The evening will be an informal discussion, based on conversation and questions from the audience. Tickets priced £10 and concessions £7.50

All this and a free showing of 24 Hour Party People with an introductory Q&A session with Tony Wilson. Tuesday 16 March 7pm. Free.

Booking is essential for all event. Call the Urbis Box Office to book on 0161 907 9099

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
