ReOrdered #2: NewSpeak 
In typical New Order fashion, an insert in the US version of the Live in Glasgow DVD contradicts Peter Hook's earlier statements about the content of the coming remastered New Order albums, and just which albums are being re-issued.

"Coming Fall 2008, New Order Collector's Editions, Remastered and Expanded in a 2-Disc Set with Non-Album Singles, B-Sides, Remixes, New Liner Notes, and More!" (The covers of Power Corruption & Lies, Low-Life, Brotherhood and Republic are pictured, with "Collector's Edition" tags added to the artwork. [Hmm, where are Movement and Technique? And now Republic pops up.])

Whether this applies to all versions worldwide, or just the US Rhino editions remains to be seen...

Thanks to Chris D for spotting.

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."
