MAXINE PEAKE PLAYS PANDORA IN NEW CHRIS FLYNN SALFORD VIDEO
 

Star date: 4th January 2014

PANDORA VIDEO AND SINGLE RELEASE

The new video to accompany Chris Flynn's single Pandora is now available to watch on You Tube previewing the track's official release on February 1st. The evocative video, featuring Maxine Peake and shot at Salford's Eagle Inn, is well worth a watch.

Full details here…


Back in November, the Salford Star featured singer songwriter Chris Flynn. His tunes kick cans down the old and new streets of the city, acknowledging larger than strife characters and Ewan MacColl-inspired backdrops en route (see previous interview and article - click here).

His eagerly awaited album will be out in spring but in the meantime there's a single called Pandora being released on February 1st, and, as a preview, the accompanying video is now up on You Tube.

Pandora is one of those songs that sticks in the psyche, and Chris told the Star that "The old canal in the song relates directly to Dirty Old Town; that's a comment on the changing face of Salford as well as looking back to the past, …and perhaps an ex lover."

The stunningly shot video, directed by James Statham and filmed in the Eagle Inn, features Maxine Peake as Pandora, as a normal night down the boozer turns uber melodramatic with a few yearning looks across the bar room.

Pandora is on You Tube now – see the embedded video or click here

Pandora will be available to buy from Piccadilly Records, from iTunes or direct from the Chris Flynn website from 1st February - further details click here.

Chris and friends play live at The Lowry on Friday 18th April – ticket details to follow on www.chrisflynn.org.uk

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

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.
