Girls Don't Count... but Section 25 do! 
Section 25's Vin Cassidy has been mithering Cerysmatic again (like most times, with good cause). We can do no better than hand proceedings straight over to the Twenty-Fiver:

"We finally seemed to have reversed a trend started over 30 years ago....With our first release, Girls Don't Count we did so many gigs over a 12 month period while waiting for the single to eventually come out on Factory, Larry and I got totally cheesed off playing the same songs. Now in the last year we have had more releases than gigs, what a result!!!"

Don't believe him? Well, here are the releases since Summer 2012:

Double vinyl From The Hip
Re-released Love And Hate CD
Split 12" vinyl with US band Stereograph
Larry and Vin's contribution to a version of Love Will Tear Us Apart on PRE double vinyl album (This was Larry's last ever recording before he died)
Invicta Max 10" EP
Dark Light CD, the band's new album
My Outrage, 7" vinyl single, taken from new album
Eigengrau CD - S25 remixed by the likes of Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire), Portion Control, 23 Skidoo, Absolute Body Control

Peter Saville colour wheel
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."
