We're delighted to welcome back legendary Manchester band A Certain Ratio to the Voodoo Rooms for what should be one of the best gigs of 2018, with support from DJ Davie Miller (Fini Tribe).

A Certain Ratio and Mute, continue the reissue campaign that will see all of the Manchester legends catalogue released by the end of 2018 and be consolidated with a new compilation, that contains new tracks and box sets of rare and unreleased material

A Certain Ratio (Jez Kerr, Donald Johnson, Martin Moscrop, Denise Johnson and Tony Quigley) continue to tour, playing, arguably, the best shows of their career, following last year’s incredible sold out hometown performance in Manchester.

A Certain Ratio embraced the ethic and culture of the late seventies post-punk explosion, but sounded like nothing else around them and refused to fit in. Formed in 1978, the band had various members throughout their career, and a core line-up of Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson.

Hailed universally as pioneers of what became known as “punk funk” thanks to the success of ‘Shack Up’ on both sides of the Atlantic, their sound is not easily pigeon holed and their influence can never be understated. The band introduced the avant-garde elements of funk, jazz, electronics, tape loops and technology to the pop song, wrapping it in a post punk aesthetic, adding great clothes and the coolest haircuts.

They have gone on to influence generations of musicians — from LCD Soundsystem, Happy Mondays, Franz Ferdinand, ESG, Factory Floor and Andrew Weatherall, who will appear at the band’s sold out Hebden Bridge performance in May.

The Guardian’s Dave Simpson paid tribute to the band, once described as “James Brown on acid” in a recent Cult Heroes piece: “Once you start listening to A Certain Ratio, it’s difficult to stop”.

A Certain Ratio recently collaborated with the designer Ian Jackman Read to create a limited edition print and postcard set illustrating all of their album releases in the form of butterflies. The limited edition print and postcard book are available here:
