One of the early Manchester music pioneers are back…….and just as groovy
A Certain Ratio have certainly stood the test of time, and various musical changes. Their consistency is once again evident with the release of their new single, You Dirty Boy.
Their first release since 2008, the band – consisting of Jez Kerr, Donald Johnson, Martin Moscrop, Denise Johnson, Tony Quigley and Matt Steele – this is a song that’s smothered in their trademark sound, complete with whistles and baggy groove that’s always associated with them.
Throw in the vocals of Barry Adamson and the voice of Mr Manchester himself, the late great Tony Wilson, this song stands out from the crowd once again. And gives you that good feel vibe that A Certain Ratio have always given.
Total sunshine music for the ears.
You Dirty Boy is taken from the forthcoming greatest hits album, ACR:SET, which is released on the Mute Records label on October 12th.
