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.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
