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

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.
