Nova Nova & Peter Hook 'Low Ends'

Nova Nova & Peter Hook's Low Ends, originally released in 2013, will be issued on limited edition vinyl by Atal Music for Record Store Day - 19 April 2014. There will be two separate 7-inch singles pressed in different coloured sleeves.

The history of Low Ends is somewhat complex...

In 2002, Malcolm McLaren had been living in Paris for several years when he met and hired Thierry Criscione as the producer of his new album. Malcolm McLaren got in touch with his old friend Tony Wilson, as he wished to use the lead vocals from Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart in a new track called Love Will. Thierry Criscione then asked his friend Marc Durif from the French electronica band Nova Nova to finalise the track's production. Upon completion, Tony Wilson gave a copy to Peter Hook.

Later, when Marc Durif heard that Hooky had used the track in his own DJ sets, Marc sent Peter Hook an acoustic piano arrangement of LWTUA he had done using the full Ian Curtis acappella. Hooky then agreed to play bass on a new track by Marc which eventually became Low Ends.

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."
