Section 25 is proud to feature on 'Of Factory New York', a new benefit album for Michael Shamberg presented by Factory Benelux and New Order. Shamberg is a long-time friend of New Order and ran the NYC office of Factory Records during its Eighties heyday.
FBN 55 is out 26 May 2014 on CD and double gatefold vinyl formats, Of Factory New York gathers a selection of classic tracks by artists associated with OFNY including the John Robie remix of Yashar by Cabaret Voltaire, Do the Du by A Certain Ratio, Cool As Ice by 52nd Street, Love Tempo by Quando Quango, an exclusive version of Your Silent Face by New Order, recorded live on tour in America in June 1989. Section 25's contribution is the Megamix version of Looking From A Hilltop.
Homegrown American talent also features with Ike Yard, Thick Pigeon, Konk, Anna Domino and deejay/producer Arthur Baker included. Cover art is based on an original 1983 design by Lawrence Weiner.
Unfortunately in 2006 Michael was struck down with highly debilitating mitochondrial disease. All artists featured on Of Factory New York have donated their work free of charge, Factory Benelux will take no profit, and 100% of net revenues will be paid over to the medical trust which takes care of Michael.
"Michael has been with us from the very start," explain New Order. "Initially he was in charge of Factory New York, then became creative producer for all our early videos. He brought our attention to the early works of directors such as Kathryn Bigelow, Gina Birch, Robert Breer, Peter Care, Phillipe Decouffle, Jonathan Demme, Robert Frank, Paula Greiff, Robert Longo, Bailie Walsh and William Wegman. Michael is very ill and needs constant medical attention. We want to help him, and played two fundraising shows in 2011. This new Factory New York compilation album will contribute further financial support towards Michael’s ongoing care."
