Ludus is the latin word for game, or play. Applied to the artfully provocative music of Linder Sterling and Ian Devine it's an apposite self-description, for Ludus remain one of the most enigmatic groups to emerge from Manchester during the punk era.

Ludus formed in the city in the summer of 1978 around Liverpool-born artist Linder Sterling (born Linda Mulvey), who relocated to Manchester from Wigan in 1973 to study art at the Polytechnic. "There wasn't a lot going on in Manchester at the time," she recalls. "The Poly disco every Wednesday was the highlight. Otherwise, there was nowhere to hear Bowie and Roxy Music stuff, or the Philadelphia sound. But at the end of the Sixties there was a pretty amazing art education to be had in Britain. We came in at the tail end of it. Peter Saville and Malcolm Garrett were there at the same time."
