The live return of Section 25 
Three live dates have been announced by Section 25 which are the first since the death of Larry Cassidy. The shows start in Sept to coincide with the release of the Retrofit remix album and more are expected to follow.

Vin Cassidy told Cerysmatic Factory: "It's kind of scary but at same time exciting as it's a new chapter for us and things will be very different with new material and also severely revamped older material. But we will keep to the same guide principles. Bethany will be doing front vox, but everybody else will also be doing some vox."

Thu 16 Sep - The Musician, 42 Crafton Street, Leicester, LE1 2DE
Fri 22 Oct - The North Bar, Town Hall Street, Blackburn, Lancs, BB2 1AG
Sat 11 Dec - The Beat Club, 22 Corporation Street, Blackpool, Lancs, FY1 1EJ

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."
