New Kevin Hewick free mp3 
There is a brand new free mp3 download on kevinhewick.co.uk, the official website of Kevin Hewick. The track called 'Psychedelic Hairshirt' was written and recorded very recently by Kevin.

Various new gigs, the biggest of which is the Summer Sundae festival in Leicester, have been announced on the site too.

More Hewick digital downloads including 'Helpline', 'Tender Bruises and Scars' and various ultra-rare KH compilation tracks are also available on iTunes (possibly only in the 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."
