Kevin Hewick to support Section 25 
Section 25 have invited Kevin Hewick to open for them at their Over the Edge reunion show at Poulton-le-Fylde on 19 May 2006.

Speaking to Cerysmatic Factory, Kevin said, "It's a great honour to join the band at this historic event, their first live appearence in nearly two decades.

I have many good memories of being on bills with them in the early 80s at the Scala Cinema and ICA in London, the New Osborne club in Manchester and The Princess Cinema in Blackpool. I also recall a storming set from them in that era at Nottingham Rock City.

And, not least, Section 25 were always good to me and gave me much support and encouragement in those amazing but confusing times for the younger, more foolhardy Hewick.

Those memories are important but this is also so about the now. Both Section 25 and I are very fired up about our new music. Neither they nor I are bygone footnotes in the Factory story. We are still standing and still creating and eager to play to friends old and new in the 21st Century.

I'm also hoping to soon confirm yet another live date with Section 25 in July in Leicester."

Kevin is also playing at Alan McGee's Death Disco at the Notting Hill Arts Centre, London on 7 June 2004. The other act on the bill is Movement, a Manchester band.

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.
