A Certain Ratio was one of the first groups to sign to the legendary Factory Records in Manchester. Whilst many people credit New Order and The Happy Mondays as the groups who brought dance music into the sound of Manchester, it is in fact A Certain Ratio who were there in the beginning. Formed in 1978, the initial line-up comprised Simon Topping (vocals), Martin Moscrop (guitar and trumpet), Peter Terrell (tape loops) and Jeremy Kerr (bass). Their debut seven-inch “All Night Party” was Factory Records’ fifth release. Soon after this Donald Johnson joined on drums.
This Cornflower Blue pressing is limited to 2,000 copies worldwide and includes extensive sleeve
