 Brian Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy
The name supposedly refers to one of Adolf Hitler’s numerous dubious guidelines: everyone with a certain ratio of Jewish blood was to be considered Jewish.

A Certain Ratio actually did not record the statement from the German dictator’s mouth, but instead relied on the text of a Brian Eno song, from the album Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy: 

'We Are the 801
We Are the Central Shaft
Looking For a Certain Ratio
Someone Must Have Left It Underneath the Carpet.'
