Section 25 - Always Now [FBN 3-045 CD] 
Section 25 - Always Now [FBN 3-045 CD]

To coincide with our recently-announced Records Store Day single Mirror we are proud that on 6 April 2015 Factory Benelux releases a deluxe 34-track 2CD edition of our Martin Hannett-produced debut album Always Now.

Recorded by the original trio line-up of the band at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studio in London, Always Now combined austere post-punk rhythms with elements of Can, Krautrock and modern psychedelia.

The second disc features loads of bonus material including a John Peel session from January 1981, a complete live show from Groningen in October 1980, plus various remastered alternate versions of several album tracks.

This new Factory Benelux 2CD edition is housed in a miniature version of the fabulous folding pochette wallet designed by Peter Saville.
