Hamish Muir designs the 8vo cover for Creative Review 
The new edition of Creative Review [January 2006] features a special 8vo' cover designed by Hamish Muir in the 8vo 'Interact' screen font and printed in four special fluorescent inks. The cover reads "8vo were treating typography as the image whereas before it was the bit that you put at the bottom of the poster after you had the idea. They exploited the fact that you could make the typography entertaining in itself".

The magazine contains an illustrated critique of the 8vo book 'On the outside'.

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."
