A Certain Ratio – Do The Du (Casse)
Label: Factory (US) – Facus 4
Format: Vinyl, 12", 45 RPM
Released: Jan 1981
Infectious new-wave / funk perfection from Wythenshawe's finest export A Certain Ratio, once again proving why Manchester is the best city in the world with their '81 'Do The Du (Casse)' EP. Listen closely for those trademark Hannett production tricks with esoteric quirks aplenty and bags of space on 'The Fox', but its the title track that you're paying for here, combining the insistent groove of the high bass line and Hannet's signature echo chamber for one of the finest leftfield releases to emerge from the rainy city.
