Kevin Hewick's live summer line-up 
Kevin Hewick is one of the guest vocalists featuring in a concert at The Paradiso, Amsterdam on Sunday 4 June. This is a tribute show to Kevin's old friend the late Adrian Borland. Each of the guests will be singing 2 songs from the newly released album 'The Amsterdam Tapes' and 2 songs by Adrian's hugely under-rated 80s outfit The Sound. Other vocalists appearing include Mark Burgess of The Chameleons and Carlo Van Putten of The Convent / White Rose Transmission. Adrian's father Bob Borland will be present too.

Kevin follows this up on Wednesday 7 June with a slot at Alan McGee's infamous Death Disco at the Notting Hill Arts Centre in London. Manchester band Movement and The Sessions also play.

Then, following two off-the-wall dates in his native Leicester (Druidic Britskiffle with Mr. Plow at The Attik on 21 June and his usual full 3-hour plus set of 30+ original songs and much audience interplay at The Twisted Toucan on 5 July 5), Kevin will be delighted to welcome Section 25 into the Leicestershire midst at The Attik on Friday 7 July. Kevin will be playing a set and the decks will be manned by members of the Falling Leaves Sound System.

Kevin says "If it's anything like the fantastic night we had at Poulton-le-Fylde on 19 May we shall be well pleased. Hopefully there will also be a couple more Section 25/Hewick shows in the near future."

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.
