The Executioner's Theme 
Paul Haig

'The Executioner', the unreleased collaboration between Cabaret Voltaire and Paul Haig which was originally planned for release on Factory Benelux (FBN 47/48) will finally be released via Les Disques du Crépuscule as part of the forthcoming Paul Haig compilation 'At Twilight' (TWI 1154 CD).

The FBN 47/48 (one was the 7", the other the 12") tracks have previously surfaced elsewhere. One mix can be found on Paul Haig's 'European Sun' compilation LP/CD (TWI 829) on Crépuscule or Interphon CD (IPCD 2018-36 1988). Another mix can be found on the cassette version of 'The Quick Neat Job' Crépuscule compilation (TWIC 643).

The 2CD album slated for Winter/Spring 2013/14 will also include Haig's lost 1984 Island album in its entirety.

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."
