    The Railway Children

    Indie Pop

    Formed in Wigan, in the summer of 1984, The Railway Children fronted by singer, guitarist Gary Newby, started out by taking their "Gentle Sound" onto the then bouyant music circuits of Wigan and Manchester. The buzz created by the band was immediate and resulted in them signing to the enigmatic Factory Records, home of Joy Division and New Order. A mini album 'Reunion Wilderness' was recorded and featured their first single 'A Gentle Sound' and the follow up 'Brighter'. Both singles were an instant hit with the then thriving indie scene and the critically acclaimed album went straight to number one in the independent charts. A string of tours and radio sessions quickly followed and as the band saw their fan base grow dramatically.

    Section 25

    Electronic Pop

    Formed in Blackpool (Great Britain) by brothers Larry and Vin Cassidy in 1978. Section 25 were initially mentored by Joy Division, and went on to record four albums for Factory Records between 1980 and 1986. The first of these, Always Now, combined post-punk textures with spacey psychedelia, produced by Martin "Zero" Hannett. Their third, From The Hip, produced in 1984 by New Order's Bernard Sumner, explored electro terrain, and spawned the oft-sampled techno hit Looking From A Hilltop.

    Now recognized as a leading genre band, Section 25 continue to play across the UK,Europe and America. The band contributed three tracks to the Warners/Rhino box set Factory Records: Communications 1978-1992, while the oft re-issued From The Hip was lauded as one of 1000 Albums To Hear Before You Die by The Guardian newspaper. The group also feature prominently in recent definitive Factory biography Shadowplayers.
