Reviews

Vin Cassidy (Section 25):

"It was bloody great. The turnout varied, about 600 Os (NL), 800 Brussels (BE), about 400 in Paris (FR) and Krefeld was 350-400 (DE). Michel Duval (Factory Benelux / Crépuscule) and Mark Kamins turned out in Paris. Playing with Hooky is ace cos neither of us drink and it's good not to be the only non-drinker on the firm. Also he taught me some good stuff about tempo, pace and dynamics and I am grateful 'bout that.

"The highlight for me was Krefeld. It all came together and was powerful and at times quite menacing in its intensity. The MO for each show was Kevbo, then S25 for 9 songs then we were joined by Capt Hook. We then do 10 NO/JD then we fuck off. Encore next with just S25 doing 1 song and then the grand finale with Peter joining us for Doubts Even Here.

Quote of tour has to be Mark Kamins in Paris: "Glad to see you guys still got your motherfucking chops".

Ian Butterworth (Section 25):

"Well for starters, I don't think that I have ever been as nervous as I was before the Paris gig! Had we rehearsed enough..? Will my amp blow up? I shouldn't have worried as by the time we had done our SSXV set we were ready... for anything!

"Hooky and his 'guitar-man', Phil Murphy were great, as their 'attitude' spread like wildfire, and we just 'went for it' on the subsequent nights. Just think 'Punk Rock' and you shall be alright! (as my Granny used to say).

"By the German gig we were chuffin' rocking, so it's a shame it was the last. We had definitely 'nailed it' by that time.

"I joined Tunnelvision in 1981, so I suppose the Joy Division / New Order songs are in my DNA, but it was still bizarre to be on stage playing those songs with Hooky! We also didn't want to do 'straight' versions of the JD/NO songs, so hopefully we put a little 'twist' on them, making them rawer and bringing the SXXV 'edge' to them. Everyone on 'the team', the people working at the venues, were fantastic and also the audiences too. Lets do it again!"

Kevin Hewick:

"I was not only lucky enough to get to perform at four superb venues, I also got to witness all four SXXV/Hook soundchecks and sets and and watch them evolve and bond as a unit. By show three at Oss you were getting a version of 'Interzone' that made a lot of heavy metal seem wimpy.

"I was sorry to learn of Roger Wikeley leaving Section 25 as he is a wonderful man and ace musician but new Sectioner Steve Stringer is doing brilliantly both as a player and as a personality.

"Over 2 years on into their 'comeback' SXXV never fail to impress me live, it always feels like an event... but when Hooky strolled on it went mega - some of the greatest basslines ever done with attitude and panache.

"There were a few fluffed notes and cues but they didn't matter, I've heard less than perfect JD and NO live recordings. What matters is the true spirit of the music came alive.

"I've seen some lame comments on the net about people being old and fat and fossils - in fact Peter was match fit and had enough energy and charisma to light up any concert hall - and would then do a full-on DJing set straight after, rooms full of people going totally loco - job done and all the Hooky knockers looking pretty petty as far as I'm concerned.

"Paris and Brussels were more formal in concert venues with lovely appreciative audiences. Oss and Krefeld had a more rock 'n' roll club feeling, big places still though, and edgy and exciting.

"There was lots of fun on the tour bus and in the hotels, not the debauched rock band on tour myth kind, more that Stu Hill, Phil Murphy, Ian Butterworth and Steve Stringer just made everyone laugh a lot. I like my deep conversationals too and had lots of them with the Cassidys, Lesley Hunter and James Nice.

"We were a real community for those magical days of travel and music and it was honestly one of the best times I've ever had, I wish it had been a much longer tour, the vibe was there, 100%!"

Alex Staszko (fan):

"The 4 gigs got better after each one. The setlists were slightly different: Paris was much shorter, S25 only did 5, with a different encore. Hook didn't do Ultraviolence at the 1st 2 gigs. Poppyfields was played at 3 & at the last 3 afterparties (it went down really well in Brussels), Pottsy turned up in Paris.

"They played Looking From A Hilltop on the last nite. A lad from Brussels who was stood next to me & had been at 3 gigs said it was the best version he had ever heard!"
