Shall We Take A Trip #1 
From Northside on Facebook:

"Top band, top tune... from those opening lines you know your getting something special with this song!

Lets push for this group to get f*cking massive in the hope that word will spread - on the week commencing 30th June 2008 we need to get as many people to download this song from iTunes and get it into the UK #1 slot!!

Lets face it, in an era when such crap as Duffy, Estelle and Basshunter have been able to claim the #1 slot, we should be able to get this one in there somewhere... just imagine how proud you'll all be putting this classic back up where it belongs and dislodging some of the current chart/pop guff in the process. all for the tidy price of 79p!

Go to it kids, the destiny of this top, top tune is in your hands, dont waste it!"

Good luck lads!

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."
