Section 25

Real Name:
Section 25
Profile:
Section 25 were formed in Blackpool, Lancashire in April 1978 by brothers Lawrence and Vincent Cassidy, taking their name from a provision of the Mental Health Act which allowed for compulsory detention. The group joined Factory Records and were produced by Martin Hannett and later Bernard Sumner.

Unlike the majority of their obvious peers the group survived beyond 1982, and in 1984 not only scored an international dance hit (Looking From a Hilltop) but also synthesized acid house before it was a recognised style. The original group split in 1985.

The Cassidy brothers revived the band in 2006, although Larry Cassidy died in 2010. His daughter Bethany then fronted the group for several years before joining Sea Fever. The band is now a duo of Vin Cassidy and Stephen Stringer.
