Full details to follow.

So what's the point if it's identical in content? This FBN 'editions' malarkey is a crafty ploy to hook in Factory collectors and dupe them into thinking they're getting proper Factory collectables. They're not - and I'm sorry to say it comes down to being a cynical cash cow.

I somehow doubt James has dumptrucks full of money backing up to his house from these reissues.

(And frankly, if he did, that would be fantastic. He would be getting a quid, the bands would be getting a quid, and most importantly all this great music would have people actually listening to it, lots and lots. I really don't see a downside.)

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."
