Minny Pops - A Quietus Occasion 
A reminder that Minny Pops play The Lexington in London on Monday 26 November as part of A Quietus Occasion being organised by Tim Burgess and O Genesis. A special surprise is promised for the first 50 attendees so don't be late (and try not to spend too long round the corner in the Craft Beer Co, Islington)!

The gig coincides with the band's new single release, Waiting For This To Happen/Glistering [OGEN 027]. The special live event will also feature a live set from Pavlov's Children, readings by Craig Parkinson (who played Tony Wilson in Control) and DJ spots by Tim Burgess and Nik Colk Void of Factory Floor.

Tickets priced 9.00 GBP are still available via WeGotTickets.

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."
