Manchester's A Certain Ratio embraced the ethic and culture of the late-70s post-punk explosion, but sounded like nothing else around them and refused to fit in. Formed in 1978, the band had various members throughout their career, and a core line-up of Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson. ACR's myriad influences created their uniquely eclectic sound, one that the band once described as "James Brown on acid." Some of these influences include Brian Eno, Miles Davies, Tower of Power, Airto Moreira, The Velvet Underground, Kraftwerk and Wire.
