The Venetian Book of the Dead out now 
Unfolk have uploaded a new video to YouTube for the track Someone Is Always Screwing Someone.

Kevin Hewick told Cerysmatic Factory: "The video was made by Bob Brian who also played some of the guitar on Unfolk::Allessandro Monti::Kevin Hewick album The Venetian Book of the Dead. It was filmed on location in Marghera and Mestre just outside Venice it shows the industry in the area, the scene of the tragic events that inspired the album. To me it also looks quite 'Factory' in it's visual style!".

The The Venetian Book of the Dead is out now on iTunes, Burning Shed [UK], CD Baby [USA] and Audioglobe [Italy].

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."
