Light and Motion 
The Telegraph reports on how Audi commissioned Peter Saville to produce a series of five artworks to commemorate the launch of the A5. Under the title 'Light and Motion', the five photographs were created using long exposure photographs of the Audi A5 being driven round Battersea Power Station at night.

The design process is further fully documented at Audi.co.uk and in a television programme which is being screened tonight and Thursday 22 November on the Audi Channel (Sky Digital 884).

The Telegraph article also includes a competition to win exclusive limited edition 'Light and Motion' prints.

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."
