Crazy wisdom...




Section 25 is an English group formed in Poulton-Le-Fylde in 1977 and originally composed of a duo including brothers Larry and Vincent Cassidy.


Group whose name would be inspired by a provision of the law on mental health which authorized the compulsory detention.


Group which will release several albums including "Always now" in 1981, ""The keys of dreams" in 1982, "From the hip" in 1984 and "Love & hate" in 1988 in particular.


Several singles will be extracted but none will experience notorious success which will not prevent the group from making a more than honorable career.


With a spectacular revival in the middle of the 2000s, a revival that will allow the group to produce several albums of more than certain quality...

Clips :


1980...a first title which clearly shows that the group will have to work still to hope one day to break into the big day. Because for the moment, it is not won...



1980... we are close to the experimental. It is obvious that the group is not likely to touch the general public with such a sound. He will really, really, have to work in depth to improve the fundamentals...



1981...it's a little better but there's still a long way to go, that's clear. The group must therefore continue to ask the right questions and above all undertake a profound change as soon as possible...



1981... it is certain that there will be no improvements during this year 1981. We will therefore have to be a little patient before seeing them evolve in the right direction...



1982...it won't be for 1982 either. The start of the 80s on the fringes of the star system and above all on the fringes of the general public. Not easy in these conditions to exist at the highest level...



1983...there's better style. On the other hand, on the sound side, for the moment no major evolution. They remain propped up on their original fundamentals and do not intend to change them at first sight, at least for the moment...



1984...then comes THIS title. It is thanks to the latter that the group will finally succeed in making people talk about him a little bit. We are not talking about a planetary tidal wave but about a nice success of esteem, which is already not bad when you see where we started from...



1985...the evolution is slow but certain. After that, we won't rejoice too quickly because there is still a long way to go before a possible entry into the big leagues...



1986...they more or less managed to stand out from the crowd but couldn't pass the next level. It's not easy to break through when you face a plethora of competition in the mid-1980s...



1986... it is certain that all the groups cannot finish N°1 in the Charts either. There is the Elite and all the others who do what they can to exist...



1987... after some are not looking for rewards and success at all costs either. Is this group part of it, only him knows the answer...



2007...we will lose sight of them for nearly 20 years and here they are again in the 2000s, transformed to say the least. Too bad they didn't start the metamorphosis years ago...



2007... it's clear that the 2000 decade version of the group no longer has much to do with its 80 decade version. We're not going to complain about it, quite the contrary...



2007...even if the group knew how to evolve in the right direction, it is clear that its core target is not necessarily the general public. Or if this is the case, there is something that must also evolve in this direction because it is hard to believe...



2009...a band with a very surprising structure now since several generations are mixed together who normally don't have much in common. What is certain is that musically speaking, they are on the same wavelength at first sight...



2009...too bad the group didn't restructure much sooner because he could have had a very different destiny from what he will have known in the end. Fate, when you hold us...



2009...especially since the restructuring even affects the 'emotion register' area. Who would have thought that possible, especially when you remember what they produced in their very beginnings...



2010...this astonishing mix of past and modern influences allows them to produce titles of certain quality, that's for sure. Unfortunately, the general public is not really aware of this fact...



2013... whatever the case, they continue their adventure quietly and above all surely. And given what they continue to produce, we can only encourage them to continue in this direction...



2013...it's clear that bringing new blood into the group has done them a lot of good. Like what it would have been enough to add this female voice years ago and the destiny of the group would have been quite different...



2013...it's really hard to imagine that it's the same group that was born in 1977 that we hear on this title. And yet, it is...



2018...certainly, they don't produce titles every year but what they continue to deliver regularly holds up frankly. We want more, that's for sure !



2018...and given how often they come back regularly now, we imagine we'll see them again the following decade. To be continued...



2018...come on, it's not quite over for this decade of 2010. We will enjoy this musical revival until the end which will have really done the greatest good for this group...
