Selling The World 

With A Certain Ratio on hiatus, Jez Kerr has been busy recording new solo material which he has then been publishing via his Soundcloud. Alongside earlier gems such as cover versions of Isolation and Insight by Joy Division you'll find a quartet of new pieces from the last month or so.

Cerysmatic's favourites are 'Gonna Sell The World' featuring Lis Murphy on vocals (alongside Jez) is indeed "a sound that makes the world shine"and 'Who Painted God (Down is the Flight)' which features lyrics co-written by Ana Uvar. ACR fans will particularly love the latter and should also seek out the vintage curio 'Intro Talk-In' Jez's first ACR rehearsal.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
