A CERTAIN RATIO - SEXTET (2LP)


"Factory Benelux presents a remastered edition of Sextet, the second studio album by Manchester postpunk funk group A Certain Ratio, originally released by Factory Records in January 1982. Self-produced at Revolution Studio, Sextet saw the original Ratio quintet of Donald Johnson, Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Simon Topping and Peter Terrell joined by co-vocalist Martha 'Tili' Tilson. Written and recorded following a transformative sojourn in New York in late 1980, the album reflects Latin, samba and even jazz influences (eg Skipscada; Day One), while still retaining Ratio's signature brittle funk textures, heard in full effect on Lucinda, Gum and trancelike floor filler Knife Slits Water. Newly remastered, the bonus tracks across the CD and vinyl formats include non-album single Waterline as well as pseudonymous dub plate Abracadubra (released as Sir Horatio), and the band's three song John Peel session from June 1981. includes a further Peel session from November 1982, featuring two songs never before released on record: Piu Lento, and Who's To Say. Also included are both extended 12" mixes of Knife Slits Water, together with an early demo version of percussive marathon Si Firmir O Grido." (label info)
