Hacienda Records online label launch 
A new digital download site containing all Man Ray and Freebass releases to date (including lesser known remixes by Arthur Baker and others) has launched at www.fac51thehacienda.com.

To celebrate, Man Ray's new EP, Tokyo Joe (HAC 006) is released today exclusively on the site. A version of this track was originally recorded for the opening of The Factory in February 2010 but this new version has been reworked with vocals and a selection of remixes completing the package.

The digital-only release schedule continues with The Light's debut EP, 1102/2011 on Monday 9 May. The tracks Atmosphere (with Rowetta on vocals) and the unreleased Joy Division track Pictures In My Mind will be given their first ever radio plays on Friday 29 April on BBC 6 Music's Radcliffe And Maconie Show.

Following 1102/2011 Hacienda Records will issue new material by new and established artists on the first Monday of each month starting with the This Tiny Universe EP by Humanizer on Monday 6 June and the Baum... / Titten EP by Richie G on Monday 4 July.

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."
