Larry Cassidy (1953-2010)
28 February 2010, 10:48 pm

We report with great sadness the death of Larry Cassidy, singer and bassist with cult Factory Records post-punk group Section 25. Larry was found at his home in Blackpool on Saturday 27 February, and though the cause of death has not yet been confirmed there appear to be no suspicious circumstances.

 

Born in Blackpool in April 1953, Lawrence John Cassidy decided against joining his father’s family business (Casdon Toys) and opted instead to study art in London, gaining a first class degree in 1977. Inspired by psychedelia and Krautrock, and by exposure to punk at the Roxy club, Larry decided to form a band back home, recruiting younger brother Vin on drums, and guitarist Paul Wiggin. The name Section 25 referred to a clause in the Mental Health Act allowing for involuntary detention. Thanks to early mentors Joy Division the group joined Factory Records in 1979, recording their first single (Fac 18) with Ian Curtis and Rob Gretton producing.

 

Their debut album Always Now (1981) was recorded with producer Martin Hannett, and came packaged in a costly and elaborate pochette sleeve designed by Peter Saville. "I did get a fascinating brief from Larry," explains Saville on one of his finest works, "I seem to remember he wanted something quite European, but psychedelic - and with some Oriental influences. After that, I was on my own!"

 

Saville also designed the cover of From the Hip, their third album from 1984. Co-produced by Bernard Sumner of New Order, From the Hip saw a successful transition from abrasive post-punk to smooth electronics, best heard on the proto-techno club single Looking From a Hilltop. By now Larry’s glamorous young wife Jenny had joined the band, Tony Wilson having failed to interest a pre-Smiths Johnny Marr from taking over on guitar following the departure of Wiggin.

 

Both Wilson and Gretton found Section 25 frustrating at times, not least their lack of orthodox management. Indeed Gretton joked that the band were unmanageable, and that their sole gimmick was that they had no gimmick. A charismatic curmudgeon, and slightly older than most other musicians on the label, Larry sometimes found it hard to balance the aesthetic satisfaction of being a Factory band with the scant financial rewards. ‘You have to stand there out in the desert, holding on to your own little truth, waiting for the boat to come in.’

 

Section 25 effectively split in 1986, Larry afterwards running a light industrial unit, and retraining as a schoolteacher. Plans to reform the group were upset by the tragic loss of Jenny Cassidy to cancer in November 2004, naturally also a devastating personal event for Larry, but three years later Section 25 released a new album, Part-Primitiv, followed by Nature + Degree in 2009. The Guardian also listed From the Hip as one of ‘1000 albums to hear before you die’. As appreciation of Section 25 and Factory continued to increase, the group again found themselves in demand as a live attraction, visiting Germany, Italy and the United States in 2009, and joined by Larry and Jenny’s daughter Beth Cassidy on vocals and keyboards. Larry played what proved to be his last show with Section 25 at the historic Plan K venue in Brussels on 12 December 2009, along with fellow Factory pioneers A Certain Ratio, Biting Tongues, The Names and The Wake. At the time of his death a remix album, Retrofit, was almost complete.

 

Larry leaves a partner, Lesley, and two children, Nathaniel and Bethany.

 

Peter Hook, the Joy Division/New Order bassist who joined Section 25 for several shared dates in 2008, said: "I am so deeply shocked to hear about Larry, and very upset."

 

Says Vin Cassidy: "My brother Larry wasn’t always the easiest person to be in a band with, but he was the best."

 

John Robb, writer, musician and fellow Blackpool native, writes in his blog: "Section 25 were leagues ahead of everyone else in Blackpool. They were organized and had invented their own sound – a deceptively doomy, powerful, stripped-down, bass driven, dissonant, postpunk that combined the nihilism of the times with Larry’s art school cool. Another great lost genius. Maybe Larry’s death will wake everyone up to how great his band was."

UNCUT take156/May2010: Hier ist ein Nachruf an Larry Cassidy zu finden; allerdings ohne Foto:
Blackpool vocalist Cassidy dropped out of a law degree to study fine art. But his enthusiasm for the London Punk Scene led to him forming Section 25 once back in Lancashire. The band signed to Factory in 1979, with debut 45 " Girls don`t count " produced by Ian Curtis and Rob Gretton.
--  leider fehlt ein foto bei der gemeinsamen studioarbeit mit Ian Curtis, der ja erst-und letztmals (?) als Produzent gearbeitet hat --
Their first album, the Martin Hannett-produced Always Now arrived in 1981. By the mid-80`s the Section 25 sound had evolved from dissonant and doomy art-punk to techno;enlistening    another noted Factory name-Bernard Sumner- to oversee From the hip.
The band folded in `86 reuniting in 2007 for Part-Primitiv. Cassidy had been working on a Section 25 remix LP, Retrofit, due for release this summer.  ( Rob Hughes/Uncut )

Habe die Tage die Remix-CD "Eigengrau" von SECTION 25 bekommen und da sind zum Teil recht ungewöhnliche wie interessante Interpretationen drauf! Die 10" mit dem DL-Material von Peter Hooks-Label + Bonus ist auch zu mir unterwegs...
