MANCHESTER’S legendary proponents of the post-punk soulful funk A Certain Ratio, fresh from the release of their excellent ACR:EPA EP, four tracks from the final session that the band laid down with Denise Johnson (see the video for the hypnotic “Wonderland” here) are marching on in such a sonic hot streak as they announce the …

STRIDING across the synthpop world for 36 years now in a career absolutely without parallel, Vince Clarke and Andy Bell are back with a remixes take on last year’s album, The Neon; and they’ve also announced a string of dates across the UK and Europe for the autumn.

THEY’RE on such a hot streak these days; Mancunian fun legends A Certain Ratio have been absolutely on fire, creatively so vivacious and so irresistibly taut, since ACR Loco dropped in the final days of last summer, an album of which we commented “effortless Mancunian pop and the tautest funk remade anew.” “Yo Yo Gi” …
