A Certain Ratio's Force, even though it was released some years after their previous full-length, I'd Like to See You Again, was still something of a transitional effort, being simultaneously the studio debut of sax player Tony Quigley and the curtain call of keyboardist Andy Connell, the latter having started to gain mainstream success via Swing Out Sister.

Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jeremy Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records. The next proper ACR record was the epochal Shack Up, released by Factory Benelux in July 1980. Recorded for £50, the single still managed to dent the Billboard disco chart in the USA. Antilles/Island expressed interest in signing ACR, and they were invited to record with Grace Jones, but the band elected to remain with Factory and Wilson. In September ACR completed a short American tour supporting New Order, and collected an extra vocalist in Martha 'Tilly' Tilson. Download.

Formados no final da década de 70 e início da década de 80, com influências de Kraftwerk, Wire e Parliament, A Certain Ratio editaram em 1982 “Sextet”. Imaginem a “funk music” misturada com a cinzenta Manchester. Bateria, baixo, guitarra, trompete e voz estilo Ian Curtis/Joy Division. Os músicos eram de superior qualidade. Conforme abandonavam a banda novos projectos surgiam: Simon Topping formou os Quando Quango e colaborou com os M People. Andy Connell formou os Swing Out Sister.
