PRINCE And JAMES BROWN Join Forces In Manchester – New Album ‘ACR LOCO’ By Post-Punk-Funk Legends A CERTAIN RATIO Out Now

25 September 2020

First album in 12 years

AllMusic/Andy Kellman verdict: “ACR Loco is freer in spirit and lighter in touch than their previous LP, Mind Made Up. While ACR could be forgiven for feeling the weight of a 40-year history, there’s a spring in their step… They’re as comfortable with referring to their past as they are with exhibiting old and new inspirations… it’s all put together in a way that only A Certain Ratio could possibly manage… forward motion and eternal optimism.”

Full review here.

Turn Up The Volume‘s first impressions: sounds like the late great sex machines Prince and James Brobn teamed up in ACR’s notorious Manchester haven, recording together in the infamous Haçienda night club with the band’s Jez Kerr in the production room.”


The good old days
