Section 25 Live Performances

I am greatly indebted to Mark Buckwalter, Michael Mitchell, and James Nice for providing me the material for which to compile this listing. And of course, to Section 25 themselves! More information regarding their performances, compiled by both Vin and Larry Cassidy (RIP), can be found on their past site, as captured by archive.org

Many of the earliest gigs are covered on the Section 25 concerts page.



1978-06-01  City Football Club - Lancaster   (DEBUT GIG)  (support slot to China Street)

                  
Early tracks would have included 'Metro Punk', 'Whichtig',
                  'Easy Jar', 'Behind Every Dream', 'Car Crash Wreck',
                  'Fast Parts', 'Blinkered Paradise', 'Movie Star',
                  'Never Lose Your Nerve', and 'Wide Awake In Anarchy',
                   much of this described as "undistinguished thrash".

Mark Bursa:  "The first soundcheck track is a typical SXXV jam - they played
                 this (or something like it) quite a lot but it's not really a song. The second
                 soundcheck track is an unfinished version of Wretch, from the 2nd album.  Not a
                 lot of Key of Dreams stuff got played live - only really Wretch and Regions.

See here for info!  Their first concert in nearly 20 years.
                  Thanks go to
indiearchivist for providing the setlist, which
                  he's not 100% sure of, but it was partly based on the written setlist.

                  He adds, "The venue was called Over The Edge because it was a function
                  room/bar situated above a nightclub called The Edge.

                  Support was Kevin Hewick (solo w/ acoustic guitar). I haven't got
                  details of his full set, but the last song was, no surprise, "Haystack".

                  The S25 trio itself was augmented by a bass player who looked like a
                  death/dark/doom metal type of person, but despite this he turned out
                  to be very good! Larry didn't pull his bass out until mid-set (for
                  "Friendly Fires", I think), and at this point the bearded bass man
                  stepped in on keyboards. Vin remained behind the drums for the whole
                  set."

In addition, there are several sessions of demos, from 1979, 1981
(SSRU+Key Of Dreams), 1983, 1984 (Rough mixes/studio rehearsals),
and 2001, which were on the official Section 25 web site (in MP3 form)
but were later removed.

According to Nick Blakey, Tony Ashworth had told him that "I don't
have anything on the Passage.  S25 supported them once at Chorley Library
in about 1979/80...a good gig poorly attended."

Nick:  "If this gig took place in '80 it would have been early 1980 before
Dick Witts broke his arm in a car crash.  However, something makes me think
this is from 1979. This is no doubt the Chorley "old library" on Avondale
Road, and not the new one which opened in 1986.

According to Simon Dell, "I have a press item about Fun City zine promoting
gigs at Oozit's on Weds in summer 1981. Dates and bands for July 1st, 8th and
15th are given, followed by "Foreign Press and Section 25 will be playing in
August" - no further info at present."
