A Certain Ratio were a post-punk band from Manchester, England, who fused disco, funk and dub into their dark sound, releasing albums in the late 70s/early 80s on the legendary labels; Factory, Creation and Soul Jazz. Recently, Mute records just re-issued most of their early albums and they are worth checking out, where you can hear their influence on many current bands like LCD Soundsystem and !!!. They were featured in the film 24 Hour Party People where manager Tony Wilson describes them as “having all the energy of Joy Division but with better clothes”.
