Jez Kerr's Post Office drawings for C.A.L.M.

Jez Kerr (A Certain Ratio) is raising money for C.A.L.M. (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

Jez says "Whilst working at the Post Office I produced 100's of drawings at a time when I was unwell. Now recovering I would like to use these drawings to help raise funds for C.A.L.M. I have previously helped them with their 31 Songs album which helped to set up a full time help line."

There are approximately 500 hand drawn pictures which can be viewed on Jez's Facebook page.

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."
