Kevin Hewick's live summer line-up 
Kevin Hewick is one of the guest vocalists featuring in a concert at The Paradiso, Amsterdam on Sunday 4 June. This is a tribute show to Kevin's old friend the late Adrian Borland. Each of the guests will be singing 2 songs from the newly released album 'The Amsterdam Tapes' and 2 songs by Adrian's hugely under-rated 80s outfit The Sound. Other vocalists appearing include Mark Burgess of The Chameleons and Carlo Van Putten of The Convent / White Rose Transmission. Adrian's father Bob Borland will be present too.

Kevin follows this up on Wednesday 7 June with a slot at Alan McGee's infamous Death Disco at the Notting Hill Arts Centre in London. Manchester band Movement and The Sessions also play.

Then, following two off-the-wall dates in his native Leicester (Druidic Britskiffle with Mr. Plow at The Attik on 21 June and his usual full 3-hour plus set of 30+ original songs and much audience interplay at The Twisted Toucan on 5 July 5), Kevin will be delighted to welcome Section 25 into the Leicestershire midst at The Attik on Friday 7 July. Kevin will be playing a set and the decks will be manned by members of the Falling Leaves Sound System.

Kevin says "If it's anything like the fantastic night we had at Poulton-le-Fylde on 19 May we shall be well pleased. Hopefully there will also be a couple more Section 25/Hewick shows in the near future."

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
