Lee Shallcross RIP 
Lee Shallcross

It is with great sadness that we report that Lee Shallcross has died. Lee was a key player in Section 25 from the early to the mid 80's. He worked with us on several US, European and UK tours. Also making important contributions to our releases for Factory Records including the album From The Hip. Lee loved life and was a real force of energy, this coupled with his natural talent as a drummer and keyboard player meant for us, he was a great person to work with and a real asset to the band. Lee was a committed family man, and leaves behind a wife and three children.

You will be much missed, our thoughts go out to your family, goodbye old friend.

Alfresco [FBN 124] for Record Store Day

Factory Benelux presents new live album Alfresco by Section 25 issued in a special limited edition of just 500 copies in clear vinyl to mark Record Store Day on Saturday 16 April 2016.

A digitally recorded festival set mixing SXXV classics old and new, the line-up for the Alfresco event staged in their Blackpool hometown on 24 May 2015 featured Beth Cassidy, Vin Cassidy, Steve Stringer, Jo Cassidy and guest Simon Topping, formerly of A Certain Ratio and Quando Quango. "A revelation," wrote the Guardian. "The best old/new band in Britain."

Vintage dance and electro faves Looking From a Hilltop, Beating Heart and Dirty Disco are matched with more recent songs including Garageland and Inner Drive. Extra tracks on the bonus CD include a version of early Ratio classic All Night Party.

The cover art features live photography by Xavier Marquis and portraits by Martin Bostock.

The group's 1981 track Hit was recently sampled by Kanye West for the track FML on his new album, The Life of Pablo.
