Wake up London you're dead! 
The Wake have just been confirmed for the final day of the four-day London Popfest 2010 at The Lexington, Islington, London on Sunday 28 February 2010.

The Wake recently broke a long live silence with a stunning set at A Factory Night (And then again) at Plan K in Brussels.

Second-on-the-bill Horse Shoes feature a member of The Drums (who were recently seen taking the stage for an impromptu set at FAC 251 The Factory late on Saturday night). Both The Drums and Horse Shoes cite The Wake as a major influence.

Please note that this is an early show with the doors opening at 3pm.

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."
