Blackpool’s most famous music export Section 25 are best known for being a legendary band on Manchester’s Factory label. They were labelmates of Joy Division and were produced by Martin Hannett in their early days. We at Klanggalerie think that SXXV are not only known and loved in the postpunk scene, but also in the avantgarde and Industrial genres. So we asked some great bands from those scenes to remix classic Section 25 tracks. The result is an incredible variety of styles and approaches, nevertheless the whole album sounds homogenic.
Experience a different and new Section 25. The postpunk roots are still there, but the collaborators have taken their songs to a new level where avantgarde meets post rock.

“Metamorphosing from the most nihilistic group ever into progenitors of House, Blackpool’s SXXV are, inevitably, one of the groups of this very post-punk moment” (Chris Bohn, The Wire magazine)
“An amazing band and leagues ahead of everyone else.” John Robb
“I love the new Section 25 single. Pure, raw pop music that brings a massive smile to my face. The most delightful thing I’ve heard in ages and highly addictive too! “ Graeme Park
“Every band needs a gimmick. And your gimmick is, you don’t have one.” Rob Gretton
“Why can’t all pop music sound this good? Listening to ‘Dark Light’ reaffirmed that music has the power to enrich, the power to lift the spirit – this really does fill you with a warm rosy glow, and compels you in an almost infantile fashion to spin around on some imagined dance floor.The new album displays the bands innate understanding of electronic hook laden pop, underpinned by a subtle techno bpm and refined yet emotive vocals. Dark Light should propel Section 25 deep into the public consciousness” Phil Newall, Louder Than War
Also we are very excited about releasing our 7th Studio album on Factory Benelux Records.

Factory Benelux presents Dark Light, the brand new album by post-punk trailblazers Section 25, Factory workers since 1979.
Recorded in 2012, Dark Light is their first collection of new material since the tragic loss of co founder Larry Cassidy in 2010, and marks a return to the smooth electro and synth-pop textures first explored on their seminal 1984 album From the Hip. These echoes are amplified by the presence of co-vocalists Beth and new arrival Jo Cassidy, and a sublime cover image by iconic and legendary graphic artist/designer Peter Saville.
Much of Dark Light was produced in collaboration with remixer Derek Miller (aka Celtic Beitmeisters ‘Outernationale’), and includes new versions of recent single tracks Colour Movement Sex & Violence and Inner Drive. Other stand-out cuts include future pop classic My Outrage c/w otherwise unavailable track ‘Hinterland. which will also be made available as a limited edition 7” single (7 FBN 62) to mark World Record Store Day in April 2013.
Section 25 in 2013 are: Vin Cassidy, Bethany Cassidy, Steve Stringer and Joanna Cassidy. “Metamorphosing from the most nihilistic group ever into progenitors of House, Blackpool’s SXXV are, inevitably, one of THE groups of this very post-punk moment” (Chris Bohn, The Wire magazine)
‘Past tense, future perfect.’
