Retrofitted SXXV 
News in from our friends at section25.com:

Addition of new technology to an older system

The band are currently working at West Orange Studios and are about 75% through recording and mixing Retrofit. Like Ridley Scott’s transformation of the Warners backlot for Blade Runner, Retrofit signposts a glittering if slightly grubby neon techno future for Section 25. The band plan to have the project, a collection of 10 re-recorded, re-mixed, re-nourished and re-imagined songs, finished in March. To be released by LTM in May and coinciding with some selected live appearances.

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.
