LP - Limited Edition 180g Black Vinyl. Only 500 copies pressed in this edition.
The fifth studio album from post-punk trailblazers Section 25, originally released in 2007. Recorded after a hiatus lasting almost two decades, Part-Primitiv saw founder members Larry and Vin Cassidy joined by former Tunnelvision guitarist Ian Butterworth, as well as multi-instrumentalist Roger Wikeley. Combining raw postpunk power and retro-futurist electro, the album marked a convincing return to form and drew praise from reviewers.
"The music on Part-Primitiv is informed by all phases of the band's backcatalogue, incorporating their early post-punk impulse alongside their later disposition towards electronic music. She's So Pretty is one of the band's closest brushes with pop music, while Power Base is a surprisingly straightforward venture into techno, with its rampaging drum machine" (Boomkat)
Two tracks, Dream and Better Make Your Mind Up, were written and sung by Jenny Cassidy before she lost her battle with cancer in 2004. Best known for her beguiling vocal on 1984 club hit Looking From A Hilltop, on subsequent SXXV projects Jenny would be replaced by her daughter Beth.
Now released on vinyl for the very first time, FBN 130 is limited to just 500 copies pressed on heavyweight 180g black vinyl. The digital copy contains 2 bonus tracks.
