The Durutti Column Greetings Three on Tiger Bay 
Greetings Three (Tiger Bay, 2017

After a relatively quiet summer, the autumn season kicks off for The Durutti Column with a 12" 180 gram vinyl re-release on Tiger Bay for the Greetings Three E.P. which originally came out on Italian label Materiali Sonori in 1986.

Meanwhile, other re-releases are being finessed and finalised by Factory Benelux. In the coming months we can expect splendid reissues of Without Mercy and The Guitar and Other Machines.

Oh, and a Durutti fanzine (or is that fan zine) is also imminent.

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."
