Peter Saville™: Winter Wireframes 2009 
So you've been rolling along (gently now, those old bones break so easily nowadays) for the past few summers on your Peter Saville™ skateboard decks from Supreme, kitted out with your Peter Saville™ Y-3 trainers (when they're not enshrined on your Peter Saville™ plinth), all the while balancing a Peter Saville™ Sony PSP guitar cut-out in one hand and a pile of Peter Saville™ books & magazines in the other.

At a loss for what to do this winter in a Peter Saville™-designed sporty style? No worries, Peter Saville™ has got you covered. Literally. Introducing Peter Saville™-designed snowboarding wear from DC Shoes. Peter Saville™ parkas and snowpants? You betcha. ('Anexus D' and 'Sunno D' for yer night-time commando mercenary types, and 'Tazer D' for yer regular day-time ninjas.) Mind those Peter Saville™ Y-3 trainers in the slush though...

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."
