Kevin Hewick - The Heat of Molten Diamonds

Kevin Hewick's new album The Heat of Molten Diamonds is out via Pinkbox Records this week as a 6-track CD album. Recorded with Adam Ellis at Leicester's Deadline Studios throughout 2013 it features regular live favourites Americanta, Elegy for Jackie Leven plus four others. This is far from a mini-album though, as a couple of tracks clock in at a whopping thirteen minutes plus.

The Heat of Molten Diamonds is available to buy direct via kevinhewick.co.uk.

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."
