A Certain Ratio's Mind Made Up. Available here on LP and CD.
'mind made up', the new album by iconic post-punk funk outfit a certain ratio, their fifteenth long player since their debut on factory records in 1979. produced by ratio in manchester between 2006 and 2009, 'mind made up' marks a stunning return to hard-edged funky form. "the songs are timeless and true to acr's roots," says drummer donald johnson. "the emphasis was placed on keeping it simple in the studio.trickery was kept to a minimum and we never took more than three takes on any track." "most songs we jammed in a rehearsal one week and recorded the next," says guitarist martin moscrop. "we didn't rehearse them too much so that they were rough round the edges. and the lyrics are some of the best jez has ever produced. you'll also hear old acr influences throughout the album. 'teri' was actually the first song acr ever wrote, but it has never been recorded or released until now." the band line-up remains unchanged since ratio's last studio album way back in 1996, comprising jeremy kerr (vocals, bass), denise johnson (vocals), martin moscrop (guitar), donald johnson (drums), tony quigley (keys, sax) and liam mullen (keys).
