Sons of the Descent present Lazy Glamour 
Sons of the Descent - Lazy Glamour

As well as joining the reconvened original line-up of The Wendys for dates later in the year, Ian White has got together with Hugh Duggie (Lowlife) to form the "pop-tinged noir" duo Sons of the Descent. The singles Look at the Sky / Flighty and Situation in Your Head have been followed by the excellent album Lazy Glamour with everything being released via their own Brawsome Productions.

Situation in Your Head also has a rather excellent video which makes highly innovative use of smartphones.



Lazy Glamour is available now via iTunes and Bandcamp

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."
