HOOKY BACK AT THE FACTORY IN MAY

Peter Hook And The Light perform Still

The Factory £20.12 (inc charity donation)

Salford's Peter Hook is set to complete a two year trilogy of Joy Division releases when he performs the band's third double album Still for the first time at The Factory in May.

Peter Hook And The Light have already toured the first two Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer to critical acclaim, and Still completes the set. Tickets are on sale now.

Full details here…


Joy Division's third and final album, Still, was released as a double disc in October 1981, following the death of Ian Curtis. It comprised of studio out-takes and unreleased tracks, plus a live recording of the band's last ever concert at High Hall, Birmingham on 2nd May 1980.

Now Hooky with his band Peter Hook And The Light is to bring it all back, performing the whole album live, including replicating the final Joy Division concert, as featured on Still. The tour begins with two dates at The Factory in May, to complete the set as The Light have been touring the first two Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer all over the world for the last two years.

"It's somewhat bittersweet since I honestly wish there were more to go really but I am very happy that now with Still I will have played every Joy Division song ever written, again" says Hooky "I am delighted that The Light are performing Joy Division's final release in what seems set to be the final Light / Joy Division gigs in Manchester and I'm looking forward to a couple of great concerts to finish up the trilogy properly."

The ticket price for both Factory gigs includes a donation to two charities – Mind, the mental health charity, and Forever Manchester, which supports community initiatives.

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
