A Certain Ratio - Sextet [FBN 11 / FBN 11 CD]

Factory Benelux releases a special new edition of A Certain Ratio's classic 1982 Factory Records album Sextet on double vinyl and compact disc on 3 November 2014.

The latin, samba and jazz-tinged album features (and was produced by) the then core quintet of Donald Johnson, Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Simon Topping and Peter Terrell joined on vocals by Martha Tilson.

"It all came together for us on Sextet really," confirms bassist (and latterly vocalist) Jez Kerr. "We were all working together - more involved in the recording, and what went down onto tape. It's definitely got something that the other albums haven't."

The newly-remastered set comes replete with bonus tracks on both the CD and vinyl formats including non-album single Waterline plus alter ego excursion Abracadubra and the June 1981 Peel Session. The 2CD version adds further bonus content includes the November 1982 Peel Session, 12" mixes of Knife Slits Water, and an early demo of now-traditional live set closer Si Firmir O Grido.

All this packaged with original cover painting by Denis King and Ben Kelly design.

Sextet (FBN 11 / FBN 11 CD) is available to pre-order now via Factory Benelux mail order.

FAC 51 The Hacienda
The Names

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.

Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
