Default A Certain Ratio

Been listening to them a lot lately.

It`s fair to say that they probably spent most of their career under the shadow of Joy Division at Factory, but that shouldn`t detract from some of the stuff they did.

They`re a good mix of of post punk with funk influences.I`ve seen them described as Joy Division mixed with James Brown , which is probably true for their first single but it doesn`t really do justice for the rest.

anyway here`s a link for Early , a retrospective collection of some of the bands work at their peak from 81-85.
