Fred Deakin (Lemon Jelly) Impotent Fury Remixes

Manicured Noise
The Human League

Very Limited, White Vinyl Numbered 7" (500 copies) with unique artwork by Fred Deakin (Airside/Lemon Jelly).

A - Manicured Noise - Moscow 1980 (Impotent Fury Remix)
B - The Human League - The Dignity Of Labour Part 3 (Impotent Fury Remix)

In 2007 Fred Deakin, acclaimed electronic musician (Lemon Jelly), designer and DJ, selected Moscow 1980 from the Northern Stories 1978/80 album for his Triptyche mix set. A mutual affection between CTR and Fred for the Post-punk era was apparent. Very shortly afterwards came the lucky and unexpected unearthing of the long lost master tapes for the first Manicured Noise single, originally released in '80. Moscow was a double A side with Metronome.

Fred has reworked the track into a Nu-Balearic storm, infused with the spirit of the Thrashing Doves. The track recently gained much attention after BBCR1 play on a Rob-Da-Bank Nu-Balearic special.

On the B side is Fred's fluid interpretation of an early Human League cut, plucked from obscurity and crafted for the tail end of another turbulent decade.

The release comes in a special sleeve featuring original artwork by Fred.

Very Limited and Very Lovely.

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."
