Strut released FAC. Dance, a 23-track collection of Factory Records mixes and rarities from 1980-87, on 10/25, and they've continued to distribute a variety of streams, videos, and other material since then (the digital edition adds three bonus tracks). Here's the latest batch, with an emphasis on A Certain Ratio.
Bill Brewster compiled and annotated FAC. Dance in conjunction with Factory Records Ltd.
A Certain Ratio formed in Manchester in 1977, and they're still active (if not to the same extent as their neighbors in the Fall). In November, they even played a hometown gig to celebrate their 33 1/3 anniversary. According to this review, ACR "had 99% of the audience freaking out like their lives depended on it."
Follow them on Twitter here. Tagline: "Everybody else says post-punk funk."
Not included on the collection (the other ACR track is "Knife Slits Water").
A few weeks ago, Strut also sent a stream of a song ("Pretenders of Love") by Berlin-based duo Shark Vegas, but I didn't like it as much. Decide for yourself here, where the label has included a new interview with SV's Mark Reeder.
