Peter Saville's Personal Style 
GQ.com's Daniel Phelan interviews Peter Saville in Shoreditch about his personal style and recent projects which include Kanye West's logo and loads of deconstructed logos for Lacoste's birthday.

Saville says "The interesting thing is that people are coming up to me and saying 'Peter, what would you like to do?' They're not coming to me with design problems. A personal mission to tidy up the world is not on my agenda. I've done that, that's what I did at Factory. I see things all the time that could be better, but I turn the other way. There's plenty of other people to attend to that."

We also get to learn how Peter got Marc Jacobs to make him his favourite jeans in white.

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."
