FBN 36 Short Stories for Pauline 
The long-lost Factory Benelux album by The Durutti Column, Short Stories For Pauline, is set to be released, complete with original FBN 36 catalogue number, on 18 June 2012 via LTM.

The album was originally recorded by Vini Reilly in Brussels in 1983 but was never released. The 14 tracks include College, Take Some Time Out and Duet. The latter was recorded with Blaine L. Reininger (Tuxedomoon viola player) but at Tony Wilson's insistence was pulled from the album and developed into what became FACT 84 Without Mercy and Short Stories… fell by the wayside.

Of course certain tracks have surfaced on official compilations including Crépuscule's Hommage à Marguerite Duras, this limited edition vinyl release will be the first time the original FBN 36 album has appeared in its entirety. New artwork has been prepared with the help of Crépuscule designer Benoit Hennebert and one of the 1000 copies of the vinyl album will entitle the purchaser to a free digital download version.

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."
