Section 25 - new album and dvd on LTM 
Section 25 release a new album entitled 'Part-Primitiv' and a live dvd, 'Communicants' on the LTM label in April/May 2007.

Part-Primitiv was produced by the band at West Orange Studio, Preston, in 2007. Stand-out tracks include Can't Let Go, Dream, Carbon and You Never Make Your Mind Up. As the title suggests, the new album combines raw post-punk power with retro-futurist electronics, including two tracks written and sung by Jenny.

Communicants offers a professional multi-camera shoot of their triumphant homecoming show at Blackpool Empress Ballroom in October 2006 (as guests of New Order), as well as bonus performances from Brussels, Dublin, Athens, Paris, London and Poulton-le-Fylde. The 70 minute DVD also features interview material with Larry and Vin, and footage shot on the road. As well as SXXV classics Dirty Disco, Friendly Fires, New Horizon and Looking From A Hilltop, new songs Gene and Can't Let Go are also featured.

Section 25 will be promoting Part-Primitiv and Communicants with further live shows, including an American tour in May 2007. They will also be featured in upcoming documentaries on Factory (BBC4) and Joy Division.

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."
