From the 21st Amendment to Phoenix, Arizona 
It's that time of year again. Kick out the old and welcome the new.

Yes, I'll be on holiday for a few weeks and moist will be minding the shop. Remember to stop by and say hi.

Please note that Scream City will not be on sale again until late October.

Ever been to Utah?

I used to live in Utah, where are you going exactly? Salt Lake City has "life" but outside of that it's a nature lovers part of the country. If you go to Phoenix, go to Stink Weeds records, it's pretty good. Also, while in Utah eat what is known as a scone.

The full itinerary is California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona. Possibly dip into Colorado too. We'll be in Utah for the day when we visit Monument Valley.

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."
