Christmas Works Do 
After their European success with Peter Hook, Section 25 have announced a special one-off SXXV Xmas Party at the Beat Club in Blackpool on Friday 19 December. The line-up will comprise Section 25 plus a special aftershow DJ set from Peter Hook plus support from Pink Hearse, Dave Mac and DJ Stu Diggle. Tickets are only 8 quid in advance or 10 on the door.

A source close to the band informs Cerysmatic that Peter Hook's involvement will in fact be a bit more than DJing and that he will be joining SXXV on stage for the first UK outing for Peter Hook Section 25. So this is indeed an event not be missed.

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."
