PreOrder:PreTroxy live @ The George 10 Dec 
New Order return to the UK on Saturday for their first gig in the UK since 2006, and anyone in the vicinity of the gig in the late afternoon should think about going along to a charity event organised by New Order tribute act Re:Order.

The Pre:Order event takes place at The George Tavern, 373 Commercial Road, just 600 yards down the road from the Troxy. The charity in question is the Special Care Baby Unit at Chase Farm Hospital and the event kicks off at 5pm and will be finished in time for everyone to catch New Order's support act, Jake Evans.

More info: Facebook, Re:Order website and The George Tavern.

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."
