Ending up with the week with a session from A Certain Ratio and a dose of Post-Punk-Funk.

Still around, though not active. Writing, but not recording at the moment, A Certain Ratio have undergone a huge number of personnel changes since their initial formation in 1977.

This 1979 session catches them with all the original members and just around the time of their first record deal, with Factory Records.

And it just wouldn’t be official without a visit to John Peel, would it? Though not all that well known over on this side of the Atlantic, they nonetheless made a splash during the Post-Punk period, and added Funk and Dance to the mix.

So here’s that session, recorded on October 17, 1979.
