A Certain Ratio are a post-punk band formed in 1977 in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England. While originally part of the punk rock movement, they soon added funk and dance elements to their sound. They are sometimes referred to as "post punk funk". The band’s name is taken from the lyrics of Brian Eno’s song "The True Wheel" from the 1974 album Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy).Nice, James (2010), Shadowplayers: The Rise and Fall of Factory Records, Aurum Press, ISBN 978-1845136345. p.42
