FAC 51 T-Shirt competition results 
We asked you "What were the four ingredients of a 'Zero Hour' cocktail, as served in the Gay Traitor Bar?"

The answer (which smart FAC 51 fans would have found on the Gay Traitor page sandwiched between a Killer Zombie and Death in the Afternoon) is Brandy, Apricot Brandy, Creme de Menthe and Pernod.

And the envelope please...

The winner (who will receive a complete set of brand new limited edition FAC 51 The Haçienda official t-shirts in the size of their choice) is Dave Stephenson. Congratulations to Dave. We'll be in touch. Thanks too to everyone who entered the competition.

Official, limited and available FAC 51 T-Shirts are also available to buy from Slipstream Stores' online Hacienda shop. They're better than a meat pie.

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."
