Monday, 17 March 2014When Section 25 met Michael Shamberg
With the upcoming Of Factory New York benefit album for Michael Shamberg due out on xxx, Angie Cassidy and Vin Cassidy recall their meeting:
"We first met Michael Shamberg in 1984, when the band was in the States touring to promote From The Hip. He was an elusive character with a very beautiful girlfriend called Miranda. We really saw more of his assistant Anne Lehman. The From The Hip tour took in the whole of the U.S. and the last show was at The Ritz in New York. Michael had organised a really nice poster for this gig (by Lawrence Weiner). When we arrived in NY for the final show we did not see any of the posters up around town, we thought it a bit weird. We asked Anne about it and she told us they were stacked up in a corner of the FAC US office and nobody had arranged to have them put up! A lovely story and in true Factory tradition."
Of Factory New York [FBN 55] is out on 26 May 2014 and is available to pre-order now via factorybenelux.com.
