Factory Benelux presents a re-mastered and expanded edition of Always Now, the first album by Section 25, originally issued on Factory Records in 1981 and produced by Martin Hannett.
Recorded as a trio at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studio in London, Always Now combined austere post-punk rhythms with elements of Can, Krautrock and modern psychedelia. Key tracks include Friendly Fires, Dirty Disco, New Horizon and Hit (sampled by Kanye West on The Life of Pablo), along with non-album singles Charnel Ground, Je Veux Ton Amour and Girls Don't Count - the latter produced by Ian Curtis and Rob Gretton (of Joy Division).
Disc 2 offers a wealth of illuminating bonus tracks, all previously unreleased. These include a three song John Peel session from January 1981, a complete live show professionally recorded at Groningen (Netherlands) in October 1980, and alternate versions of several album tracks newly re-mastered from the original quarter-inch tapes.
This expanded 2xCD edition is housed in a miniature version of the folding pochette wallet designed by Peter Saville, famously one of the most expensive sleeves produced by Factory. The package includes inner sleeves and red I Ching seal sticker.
