A bunch of kids in love with tribal funk, Factory Records' mainstays A Certain Ratio were equally fired up by punk and art rock. Taking their name from a Brian Eno lyric, their output stands as some of the most challenging and downright danceable from the era.

Taking the occasional break, a new line up of the band have completed work on their first album in over a decade.
