The Durutti Column Subscription CD 
A few more details on The Durutti Column subscription service from Phil Kooky with the promise of more payment options in the future:

"1) We still cannot accept Paypal or credit cards or checks except those in UK funds..... I'm sorry but I hope to get this done soon and once the sub-group money comes in it shouldn't be too long coming.

2) Release date will be MAY 2004 sometime..... It will mean the newsletter will follow in the summer to those who subscribe.

3) It will not be a limited release - i.e. we will press to suit demand!

4) The prices in CASH - concealed at your risk are as the previous posting.



Finally, thanks for some great ideas on what to include but please please tell me what you want to know or be included it is good to make it what you want it to be!"

Cheers Phil and thanks for keeping us all updated on what is a very enterprising initiative.

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."
