... shooting 
"For eight years, London-based award-winning photographer Amelia Troubridge has been shooting men who walk the line - from Bill Clinton to Howard Marks, Fidel Castro to Hugh Hefner. Here is her take on their world."

The Trouble With Amelia contains a great picture of Tony Wilson standing in the ruins of Fac 51 The Hacienda, New Order, Shaun Ryder and Bez 'Bez' Bez. About the only thing it doesn't have is anything from 24 Hour Party People on which Amelia was the official photographer.

The details: hardcover 192 pp (April 2004) :: Publisher: Booth-Clibborn Editions :: ISBN: 1861542674

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."
