There is a selection of free Kevin Hewick mp3's available at Amazon.com - including 3 totally exclusive new tracks. These represent the first new material available anywhere for years.

'Bad Samantha' and 'Quarterhearted' are both brand new songs recorded at home by Kevin himself on his new-ish little digital recorder. 'Deservation' is a track recorded a year or so ago for the still-unreleased 'Doomcloud' album. There are also a few tracks from 'Helpline', Kevin's last new album, which is now incredibly rare.

Don't forget that you can find all the latest KH news, gigs, on the message board at kevinhewick.com

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."
