A Certain Ratio are coming to Preston as part of a special tour celebrating 45 years of the band.Advertisement
The gig at The Ferret will see A Certain Ratio perform songs in chronological order across two separate sets.
The first set will represent the early years of their career from their Factory releases – including All Night Party, Sextet and Force – through to the next stage of their journey when they joined A&M in the late 1980s, with songs such as Won’t Stop Loving You.
The band will then reconvene for a set representing the early to mid-1990s period, with songs like 27 Forever leading into their most recent releases with tracks from ACR Loco and 1982 and beyond to unreleased forthcoming material.

A spokesperson for the band said: “Since they emerged from the hallowed grounds of the late 70s punk scene, A Certain Ratio have moved with gleeful disregard for boundaries of style and genre, their eye fixed firmly on constant progression.
“It’s an ethos that’s open-minded over all else, and that’s seen them take everything from experimental electronica to vintage funk, filtered through their own Mancunian lens.”
A Certain Ratio play The Ferret on Saturday 11 November. Tickets are available from The Ferret website.
