New Order - From Heaven To Heaven 
As trailed back in March, and slightly later than expected, Dec Hickey's lavish photo book, From Heaven to Heaven New Order Live The Early Years (1981-1984) at Close Quarters will be published in January 2012.

The book, which is priced at £30, contains over 400 unpublished photos of the band and 200 plus images of rare memorabilia. There are Forewords by Peter Hook and Stephen Morris and the Introduction is by Moby.

The first 750 copies only, will 1) be hand numbered and signed by the author, 2) include a genuine unused ticket from New Order's 24 May, 1984 gig at Leicester Palais and 3) enter the buyer into a free draw for one of three A2 size Limited Edition prints. Two of the best photos from the book, plus another unpublished shot of the band, exclusive to this print, will each be produced on archive paper, signed by the photographer, in a numbered run of 20.

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."
