Back in the dark days of 80s depression, The Lonesome and Penniless Cowboys brought country music with a kick and colour to local venues wallowing in Morrissey and James. Somehow, it fitted right in… `Lonesome?'…`Penniless?'step right this way.

Now the ConDem Government time is right for a comeback. The Cowboys are Manc Hank Williams with the contrast turned to the max. It's forget yer blues and put on yer dancin' shoes music, with flying fiddles and a hoe down beat storming the lyrics, as The Thin Man, Clive Mellor and Mog defy the decades with timeless tunes.

The Cowboys define themselves as "probably the best band you've never seen" but anyone who was around Chorlton Irish Club back in the day will remember sweaty packed out nights and a rammed dancefloor.

"In the last decade the Cowboys have played an average of four gigs a year" they say "But, as none of us are getting any younger and, having narrowly missed the end of the world twice in recent times, we've decided to up the ante and play at least six gigs a year."

The first of those six gigs is at The Kings Arms tomorrow night (Sunday)... `Lonesome?'…`Penniless?'…step right this way…


The Lonesome and Penniless Cowboys
Sunday 3rd March 7:30pm £6
The Kings Arms
Bloom Street, Salford

SALFORD COUNCIL TOLD TO `GET ITS HOUSE IN ORDER' OVER FREEDOM OF INFORMATION DELAYS

THE MOST EXPENSIVE POLITICS SHOW IN TOWN

In the midst of some of the most horrendous cuts in living memory, Salford Council has been criticised for spending almost £10,000 on elaborate screenings of the meetings that were voting in favour of those cuts.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL ACCOUNTABILITY DEFICIT SCANDAL

Star date: 4th March 2015

ALMOST NO PUBLIC SCRUTINY OF SALFORD COUNCIL FOR THREE MONTHS!

Salford Council and City Mayor Ian Stewart have not been held accountable in public for their actions and policies for over three months, apart from one meeting about budget cuts.

In January the Council voted to cut the number of its scrutiny committees to five but since then only one of those committees, which are supposed to hold the Mayor and Council to account, has met with the public informed.

SALFORD COUNCIL FORCED TO REVEAL MAYOR DETAILS AFTER INFORMATION COMMISSIONER GETS INVOLVED

Star date: 3rd March 2015

SALFORD RESIDENT NINE MONTH BATTLE TO GET INFO ON MAYOR

Following a Salford Star article a year ago about Mayor Ian Stewart's camper van being parked on Council property, Salford resident, Anthony Dowd, submitted a Freedom of Information request to try and get some truth. Salford Council judged his request `vexatious', then refused to answer it until the Freedom of Information Commissioner became involved.

Now Anthony has set up a Salford Council Freedom of Information Facebook group so other residents can share their experiences of fobbed off requests.

SALFORD COUNCIL TO LOSE ANOTHER £1MILLION DEVELOPER FEES AT BLACK FRIARS PUB

Star date: 2nd March 2015

PETER DONE COMPANY TO AVOID £1.2MILLION PLANNING FEES – AND WON'T EVEN PAY FOR A BUS STOP

A company part owned by Fred Done's brother, Peter, has a planning application going to Salford Council this week, to put up two horrendous blocks of apartments by the Black Friars pub in Trinity. Done's company, FICM, should be paying over £1.2million in planning fees plus providing 76 affordable properties but is set to avoid the payments due to `viability' issues.

Transport for Greater Manchester requested that the developer should at least provide two new bus stops on Blackfriars Road – but Done's company, apparently, can't even afford that. The Done brothers' wealth is estimated at around £700million.
