Kid Robot's MUNNY auction featuring Ed Templeton 
Kid Robot (urban action figure toy store in Greenwich Village and San Francisco) has a charity auction going on right now with their in-house MUNNY figure being customized by various designers and celebrities (Designers Republic, Pharell, Nick Rhodes, etc).

One of the designers is Ed Templeton of Factory Too. There's just over 3 days to run on his auction and the price was at just over 100 USD at the time of posting.

Ed designed the sleeves for Hopper and the FAC 2.24 1996 Factory Too Christmas Card.


Thanks to Mike for spotting.

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."
