Peter Walsh ltd edition print competition 
Peter J Walsh rose to prominence during the late Eighties by capturing many iconic images of the chief protagonists of the Madchester era including Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and many more. He also became a regular at FAC 51 The Hacienda and documented the sights, sounds and smells of many a night at the legendary club.

Peter has just launched an online shop for the sale of exhibition quality inkjet prints of a selection of his work. Prints are available in A5, A4 and A3 sizes in limited editions of 250 and prices start at 25 pounds.

To celebrate the launch, Cerysmatic Factory is proud to present a competition to win an A3-sized exhibition inkjet print (regular price £100) of a Walsh original photo of the late Tony Wilson. Peter has set the question which is:

Which group of people from the Sixties was Tony inspired by?

A. The Situation Room
B. The Situationists
C. The Stipulation

And now the small print: Answers by email please. One entry per person. Closing date Friday 15 July 22:00 BST. By entering you agree to be added to the email newsletter that Peter will send out at occasional intervals to notify interested parties about updates to his site. The winner will be selected at random out of the Cerysmatic hat soon after the closing date.

Good luck!

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."
