Crawling Chaos FAC 17 alternate design

This is an alternative design concept for a flyer or other promotional material for the FAC 17 Sex Machine / Berlin single by Crawling Chaos.

It is not known whether this is related to work supposedly carried out by Stephen Horsfall as mentioned by Tony Wilson in "SAVILLE: The partner's story" or whether it could in fact be to do with FAC 27, the cancelled Saville/Rob Gretton revenge programme project for alternative FAC 17 sleeve.

Or it could be neither of the above but it definitely remains a curiosity when compared with the eventual artwork.

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."
