The MDMA wants your Haçienda photos 
from mdmarchive.co.uk

As a taster for a proposed large-scale Haçienda exhibition in 2007, Urbis is planning a smaller Corridor Gallery exhibition devoted to the culture of the legendary Haçienda queue.

Urbis needs former Haç attendees to provide photos for the exhibition, which will run along a 33ft wall, attempting to recreate the atmosphere of the club queue.

The exhibition will give an overview of the Haçienda's different clientele throughout its history

Please send your photos to MDMA by 20 September 2006. The email address is info@mdmarchive.co.uk

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."
