Electric Chair's finest heroes and darkest villains come together to create five rooms and eight hours for The Riot. Manchester legends A Certain Ratio drop a rare live appearance, alongside legendary selector Don Letts, former resident at the seminal Roxy club where he introduced Punks to Dreads on the dancefloor. Joining him will be Greg Wilson playing a very special electro set, as Jillys becomes one big block party!

Richard Dorfmeister of K&D fame joins the dots with Gilles Peterson in the Music Box basement, with a late end of night set by the Unabombers. Soundclashes from local stables Aficionado, Eyes Down and Development drop into the pot, alongside live sets from Ben Westbeech and Elektrons.

Peter Saville colour wheel
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."
