Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1982 album from Manchester Post-Punk funk group A Certain Ratio. Self-produced at Revolution Studio, SEXTET saw the original Ratio quintet of Donald Johnson, Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Simon Topping and Peter Terrell joined by co-vocalist Martha 'Tili' Tilson. Written and recorded following a transformative sojourn in New York in late 1980, the album reflects Latin, samba and even jazz influences, while still retaining Ratio's signature brittle funk textures. 'It all came together for US on SEXTET really,' confirms bassist Jez Kerr. 'We were all working together - more involved in the recording, and what went down onto tape. It's definitely got something that the other albums haven't.' Newly remastered, the bonus tracks include non-album single 'Waterline' as well as dub plate 'Abracadubra', and the band's three song John Peel session from June 1981.
