A Certain Ratio embraced the ethic and culture of the late seventies post-punk explosion,
but sounded like nothing else around them and refused to fit in. Highlighted recently by
FACT, who said: “Their dub-infused punk-funk recordings have proved massively

ever band (a prestigious accolade in our estimation)”, the band have influenced
generations of musicians – from LCD Soundsystem, Happy Mondays, Franz Ferdinand,
ESG, Factory Floor and Sink Ya Teeth.
