New Section 25 album Elektra out now 
Elektra (Klang Galerie gg278)

'Elektra', the new album by Section 25 is out now via Austrian label Klang Galerie on CD and all major download platforms. This is the band's 8th studio album and shows a welcome return to an old S25 work ethic of tracks recorded in one take and plenty of improvisation.

Vin Cassidy: "I am very proud of this project, particularly as Paul Wiggin came down to play guitar on several of the songs and it was great to meet and clear the air after so many years. When Paul was putting totally improvised guitar tracks down, he asked for all instruments/vocals to be turned off except for the bass guitar and drums. It was so moving listening to him play to this bare sound, I was transported back our very first recording session at Cargo Studios in 79 with Larry, Rob and Ian.

"I am also very grateful to Michael Cassidy for the able bass duties he provided on these tracks. I am not one for covers as a rule but we thought we would turn FML around and send it back S25 style".

The CD includes an 8 page booklet called 'Section X Section'. This has a foreword by John Robb and contributions / observations from band members past and present.
