A 10" Factory Sample 
Some of you may have been lucky enough to secure a copy of the recent 10" sampler issued by Warners on Record Store Day last Saturday. The 4-track vinyl sampler featured four tracks taken from last years 4CD Factory Records Communications 1978-1992 box set. 750 copies only exist.

New Order - Ceremony (Original Version)
The Durutti Column - Sketch For Summer
Happy Mondays - Hallelujah (Club Mix)

and in a terrible shock, it features the re-recorded version of Ceremony. How is it that every New Order related product released seems to be error prone?

The box set itself also lists Ceremony (Original Version) so presumably it's wrong on there too. If anyone has this item and could scan the cover I'll create a page for it. cheeers.

Nope, in a strange Factory-esque twist they got it right on the box set.

Sister Ray had 5 copies only - I was 37th in the queue. Therefore, greddy scum on eBay got there first.

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."
