Section 25 live @ Over The Edge, Poulton-le-Fylde, 19 May 
The mighty Section 25 came out of retirement with all guns blazing on Friday night in Poulton. The four piece line-up of Larry Cassidy (vocals, bass), Vin Cassidy (drums), Ian Butterworth (guitar) and Roger (guitar, keyboards) took to the stage shortly after 10.30pm before an eager and enthusiastic crowd. The band played a set of mainly early material with a couple of covers of The Ramones and Joy Division ('Shadowplay', the first encore).

Earlier, Kevin Hewick played an amazing set on solo acoustic guitar and regaled us of his time in the Swedish Territorial Army.

Full report and pics to follow.

A big shout out to the Poulton Massive including Andrew, Kirstin, James, Luke, Elliott, Mr & Mrs James, Alex, Robert, Kevin, Larry and Vin.

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.
