05 January 2014Section 25 Reflection (Young Image) 7FBN53
It's another Record Store Day limited edition vinyl single release for Section 25 in the form of Reflection (Young Image) which will be released on 19 April 2014 via Factory Benelux (on the same day the band play The Ruby Lounge with Crispy Ambulance).
There will be only 500 copies on orange vinyl complete with exclusive b-side Change. The a-side is taken from the forthcoming release From The Hip (30th Anniversary Edition) and is a reworking of the track from side one of the original 1984 album.
SXXV's Beth Cassidy says: "On first listening Reflection is a whimsical yet heartfelt expression of true love," says Beth Cassidy. "But strip this back and we discover an inner core which explores the surreal nature of life itself. Even after 30 years there are layers to this song that conceal its true meaning."
Art direction is based on Peter Saville's original designs for classic 1984 club single Looking From A Hilltop (FAC 108).
Record Store Day 2014 will be the 7th annual celebration of independent record shops in the UK.
Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
