Bad Lieutenant Reeder remixes 
Two of Mark Reeder's remixes for the Bad Lieutenant single Sink or Swim will be released digitally via iTunes and other download outlets on Monday 22 February 2010.

In addition, Mark has made a special 5.1 video mix of his Rettungsring remix to accompany a new video cut by director Robert Kind. This will also be out for download soon.

Mark has been invited to exhibit a selection of his photos of Ian Curtis at the forthcoming Macclesfield Ian Curtis exhibition (we await further details on that one).

Finally, and away from the FAC world this time, Mr Reeder is currently remixing Underpass for John Foxx and you can expect a 5.1 mix of that too.

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."
