Issue 3 of Salford Media Scene is `Salford suss in sounds, sights and nights' and includes everything that's moving in the city's media scene with a community slant.
You'll find a four page feature on the top artist in Salford, Jo Carlon, aka Salford Artist; interviews with Steve Evets, just back from a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean, and Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk in Corrie. Plus Media City Madness, a six page piece on `arts cuts and Quays capers', and Where's All Our Cinemas Gone? – Salford has one cinema for over 250,000 people!
There's features on theatre, film, ale art, a new video production company called Pink Grapefruit, a radio production company called Twisted Ear, and people who dress up as Tudors and hang around schools.
You'll find music reviews and interviews with Misfit Music, Original Headits, Vinnie Peculiar, Trojan Horse, Class Actions and the amazing track Media City Ditty… "``Media City you're so shitty' starts the song, which goes on to suggest bribery, hypocrisy and nepotism… `Status can be got with your knickers down' the punkish, jazzy vocalist sings" writes the reviewer.
Never mind Media City, how about Higher Broughtonwood where all the best dramas are happening? And did you know there was a secret bar in Salford that's incredibly famous?
All is revealed in Salford Media Scene…
