21st Century Music 
Mark Reeder (ex-Shark Vegas) tells Cerysmatic has written a new track with Bernard Sumner. Mark says "It's too early days yet to see what will eventually happen with it and it doesn't even have lyrics or a title yet".

Mark has also produced the latest Fidelity Kastrow track '21st Century Girl' which can be heard on myspace.com/fidelitykastrowmusic. This was chosen to be the anthem of this year's Summer of Love festival in the Czech Republic (where she is also performing on 16 August 2008.

Finally, and perhaps most tantalisingly, there's the remix that Mark has just finished for the new Pet Shop Boys / Sam Taylor-Wood single 'I'm In Love With A German Filmstar' (a cover of the old 80s hit by The Passions). The single will be released on CD and MP3 on the German Kompakt label in October to coincide with Sam Taylor-Wood's new exhibition at the White Cube gallery in London which opens on 22 October 2008.

Thanks to Mark. Keep it cool over there in Berlin.

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."
