HATS OFF TO THE SALFORD MUSIC FESTIVAL!

The fantastic Salford Music Festival rounds off today with the best line up of talent you'll see under one roof all year… 43 ace bands and 15 DJ sets on four different stages at The Willows.

There's just too many bands to mention but here's a few names to show the array of different styles and talents on show… the superb George Borowski, the original Guitar George from the Dire Straits songHatty Keane, Salford's answer to Rhianna and national winner of the UK Open Mic contest last year…the jazzy, funky well named Salford Media City…the fabulous rap of the Misfits…the zooming rock of Hanky Park, the `high octane yes wave' (?) of Monkeys In Love and the debut live performance of V Thirteen, featuring ex Northside singer, Dermo… 

SHALL WE TAKE A TRIP TO…THE WILLOWS

Back in the day, Northside's single Shall We Take A Trip helped define what was called `Madchester', alongside Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, the Hacienda and all that. After touring the world, DJing and writing a zillion lyrics, Northside singer, Dermo is back with a new band, V Thirteen, that only formed six months ago. They play live for the first time at The Willows today at the Salford Music Festival finale.

V Thirteen aim to make every track sound like a single, and the two publicly available videos on YouTube - What Happened To You? and None Of That – give a hint of what's to come on the forthcoming album, The Rest Is History… top tunes backed with total attitude that hasn't moved an inch since the `Answers come in dreams' (ACID) chorus of the Shall We Take A Trip daze.

The V Thirteen line up is Dermo - Songwriter/Lead Vocals/Lyrics/Rhythm Guitar, Matt Rynn - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals, Dug McLeod - Drums
Andrew Saunderson – Bass, and Miz De Shannon - Keyboards/Backing Vocals…

"Salford Music Festival, is the real deal, real people and real music...We're proud to be part of such a great cause" the band told Salford Star, adding  "Well done to Ed Blaney, all the bands and everyone else involved..."

Catch V Thirteen at The Willows today. The band is also supporting Shaun Ryder at The Castle in Oldham on December 18th and updates and vids are available on the V Thirteen facebook site click here

This week saw a trial 'clean comedy' night at The Vine Cafe in Irlams O' Th' Height, with five comics wowing the sold out venue, and not a swear word or lewd reference in earshot...
