MAGNET Television: Q&A With A Certain Ratio

Oh, Manchester, so much to answer for. The city’s original punk funkers are back after a dozen years with a new LP, only their second in almost two and a half decades. The first band to release a single on the legendary Factory label, A Certain Ratio has seen a well-deserved resurgence over the last handful of years due to the recent reissuing of its impressive back catalog. ACR Loco (Mute) continues to move things forward, taking the great bits from the group’s storied past and giving them a modern-leaning postmodern sheen. Plus, ACR Loco has got a good beat, and you can dance to it. It’s a wild party.
