Rambo and Leroy 
Our mate Colin at Vinyl Revival (the one true record shop in Manchester) is planning to release a single by Macclesfield's Rambo and Leroy.

Colin says, "Matt and Jake from the band are currently working with Bernard and Steve on the Bad Lieutenant project and they gave me a sneak preview the other week. Sounds interesting. Not as much Electronic as I thought and a lot less New Order without the bass."

Bernard has also agreed to feature on the second Rambo and Leroy release which will be released around May/June time. The releases come out under the Vinyl Revival label name, with the first single being released on 25 February 2008.

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."
