The Complete Stone Roses v Joy Division - for charity 
From HookySpace:

"The tribute band The Complete Stone Roses will be releasing a double a-side single for charity Cancer Research UK early next year, the two tracks will be the band's song 'Tell Me Moses' which was written by the tour manager, using only titles from the Stone Roses catalogue. The second track will be a Stone Roses-style version of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' which both the band members from New Order & their publishers Universal Music Publishing have agreed to donate all royalties made from this version, also to the charity. And if that wasn't enough, Hooky is also producing and guest appearing on the single itself.

As part of the promotions for it they will be shooting a music video to accompany the release and are on the lookout for concert audience members to participate in the filming.

The shoot will happen in a city centre music venue in Glasgow on the afternoon of Saturday 8 December 2007. We cannot pay people for this as it's for charity and we need to keep costs to an absolute min however, we will supply refreshments along with a free ticket/guest list space to the Carling Academy show,later that night (all profit from this show to go to Cancer Research UK also) seeing as you will have done your bit for charity.

Any interested individuals should either reply to this post or send an email in the first instance to the bands management at office@stoneroses.net (or press the "contact" tab on he left hand side of the home page at www.stoneroses.net) Detailing your age, your location and of course, your contact email address. We will then get back to you with further details on this project.

We need around 150 people to take part so if you are interested then get back to us ASAP."

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."
