This blog entry is something has been an item that's been a long time coming, aside from the fact that I've been pushed the passed several weeks to do so. Through technological failures, and alcohol issues, I've pretty much sidelined this project (that and I'm a lazy son of a bitch, one must note). What makes this particular post all the more pressing is the necessity for A Certain Ration to be known by YOU!: the common people, the beautiful people, the wondrous, glorious readers of this blog, and fellow patrons of Atomic.
In a perfect world, ACR would have shared some of the notoriety of fellow label mates, Joy Division. Not that I believe they're more deserving of it than say later acts :cough: Happy Mondays :cough:, but ACR would find its audience. The band would find popularity in NYC clubs, falling in with the post-disco/punk, and the short but influential no-wave movements; with other funk-stylized acts, ESG and Liquid Liquid (to name a shallow few).
So, here is where I serve up one of my favorite tracks (there's also a pretty outstanding remix that should be sought after). Enjoy!
