SALFORD MUSIC FESTIVAL – DAY ONE THURS 22ND SEPTEMBER

THE ABSTRACTS PLAY THE ASHLEY BROOK PUB, Liverpool Street, Langworthy. Also playing: Blue Buds and Bill Davro

All the way from Cambridge with a Salford twang come The Abstracts, a three piece jangly indie rock outfit with a sound that kind of carries you along with its infectious enthusiasm. A good line in lyrics too – on life, lurve and, er, Poundstretcher…

The Abstracts have been going since 2007, cite everyone from The Libertines to Green Day to Led Zep as influences and are Felix Morgan (vocals and guitar), Mark Thomson (drums) and Ben Nunn (bass and vocals).

"As an ex University of Salford student, it is an honour for myself and the band to be performing at the 2011 Salford Music Festival" says Ben "The diversity and quality of music that is on show over the course of the four days is second to none and guarantees that there is something for everybody to enjoy and love. We look forward to being part of something that will bring Salford out of Manchester’s shadow and secure its place firmly on the UK’s music scene."

WELL KEPT SECRET PLAY ORDSALL LEGION, Robert Hall Street, Ordsall. Also playing Hanky Park and The Sonny Scales Band

All the way from sunny Swinton come Well Kept Secret, or WKS, a melodically kicking alternative power rock band with a neat line in self promotion…

Meet frontman, Gaz Price, "Songwriting capabilities not to dissimilar from Chris Robertson BSC, entwined with the Sickest Bass lines you'll ever hear in your life!"… Meet guitarist Paul Dorsett, "Spine tingling moments of genius in every piece of music he creates, nostalgic soulful riffs, leading to harmonic performances likened alongside Queen's legendary Bryan May"... Meet drummer, Andy J Sant, "Delivers the beats, rolls and fills, with timed precision, a drumming powerhouse sounding more like the aboriginals have come back to power!"

Can you afford to miss the WKS? Get down the Ordsall Legion! Or see them at The Willows in Weaste on Sunday 25th playing the mainstage event with loads of bands 2-11pm

FRAZER KING PLAY THE OLD PINT POT on The Crescent. Also playing Martyn Lewis and The Rainband

All the way from Manchester come Frazer King, a strange, swaggering, compelling outfit with a bucketful of easy to sing-a-long songs that you've never heard before and an attitude driven from a thousand pints of Guiness. They've got lots of celeb fans, from Mark E Smith to Andy Rourke, and have supported the likes of James, Jah Wobble and The Fall. Music critics love 'em and we're sure you will too.

If you can't make The Old Pint Pot gig they are also at The Willows in Weaste on Sunday 25th playing the mainstage event with loads of bands 2-11pm

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.
