Short intro

A Certain Ratio abbreviated as ACR are an English post-punk band formed in 1977 in Flixton, Greater Manchester by Peter Terrell guitar, electronics and Simon Topping vocals, trumpet, with additional members Jez Kerr bass, vocals, Martin Moscrop trumpet, guitar, Donald Johnson drums, and Martha Tilson vocals joining soon after. Drawing heavy influence from funk as well as disco and Latin percussion, the band were among to first to debut on Tony Wilson's Factory Records in 1979 with All. Listen free to A Certain Ratio Early Do the Du, Flight and more. 24 tracks 89:09. With the Creation reissues of A Certain Ratio's catalog becoming increasingly tough to track down and with the post-punk revival going on around the time of its release, Early arrived right on time. Despite an uneven discography and an inexplicably numerous string of Joy Division comparisons, ACR was an excellent - if inconsistent - post-punk band that exemplified a spectacular movement against the old rock guard.

A Certain Ratio were key to their native Manchester, England scene and consequently post-punk. The band debuted in 1979 with All Night Party, a single as astringent as anything else out at the time then they separated themselves by incorporating aspects of other forms, most prominently brass-spiked funk. Following late-'80s and early-'90s phases with major-label A&M and Rob Gretton's independent Robs Records, ACR were intermittently active. They returned to the studio for Mind Made Up 2008 and since then have continued to perform, with their catalog recirculated through an arrangement with Mute Records.
